San Berdu County California, Big Bear Cabins, Lake Arrowhead
Southern California has a few pine trees left, I swear. Although this dry climate suffers from numerous wildfires each year, higher elevations bring cooler temps, snow and a pine forest. High desert boulders and yucca plants all the way up to horseback riding around the lake, this region offers outdoor recreation. Don't expect fern hikes or waterfalls everywhere tho. San Bernardino Forest can get crowded due to the fact that it is located next to Los Angeles, so if you seek seclusion head north to the Sierra Nevada.
