Another nice video report BusyWeb. I like your bubble comment inserts. Although I don't remember my first water crossing, they almost always cause me to pause before entry. I've never gone into one that was too deep, but almost (but didn't) dump the TW crossing a creek, which I had to cross several times on a particular trail. Big rocks in the water were and are my concern.
In some of your footage by the look of some of the trees, it looks like a fire has swept through the area. My uncle has a cabin (looks like a house to me) at Big Bear though I've never been there or the lake. Maybe someday. Until that day, thanks for making these video's and showing us the area's around L.A. I haven't been near their since 1982 and don't remember much.
Thanks for sharing
