    Big Bear Lake 'Bearly' Frozen


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     mhilburn00 shot these photos of California's Big Bear Lake, which is nearly thawed after an unseasonably warm winter. 'Last week it was in the 80s here in San Diego,' he said. 'Many of the mountain ski resorts are still partially closed for lack of snow.'

    This year a group of friends and I decided to escape snowless San Diego and spend New Year's Eve in the mountain ski resort town of Big Bear Lake. Unfortunately, mother nature had different plans this winter and not much snow was to be found and the lake was barely beginning to freeze over. Despite the warm weather, we were able to have a great time and had the opportunity to watch this beautiful last 2011 sunset over the mostly frozen lake.
