Wikipedia Description: Arrowhead Springs, San Bernardino, California
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Arrowhead Springs is the name of a neighborhood in the 81-square-mile (210 km2) municipality of San Bernardino, California, officially annexed to the city on November 19, 2009. The neighborhood lies below the Arrowhead geological monument, which is California Historical Landmark #977.
The natural geographic formation of light quartz on the side of the mountains presides over San Bernardino and the rest of the San Bernardino Valley. The city of Lake Arrowhead, California and the adjacent lake, Lake Arrowhead Reservoir, take their names from the formation as does Arrowhead Water. The Native Americans of the San Bernardino Valley thought the Arrowhead pointed to the artesian hot springs below, which are the site of the historic Arrowhead Springs Hotel, Spa, & Bungalows.
Arrowhead Springs Hotel and Spa:
The historic Arrowhead Springs Hotel and Spa, located in the Arrowhead Springs neighborhood, encompasses 1,916 acres (7.75 km2) directly beneath the Arrowhead geological monument that presides over the San Bernardino Valley. The resort contains hot springs, in addition to mineral baths and steam caves located deep underground. Long the headquarters for Campus Crusade for Christ, the site now remains largely vacant and unused since their operations moved to Florida.

The specific plan for the future of the site includes: a new 115-room annex to the existing 135-room hotel; a new 300-room lakefront hotel; new reservoirs and a reconfiguration of the 5-acre (20,000 m2) Lake Vonette; new vineyards, along with the Windy Point restaurant and wine-tasting site; a new 18-hole golf course; 36 new custom estates on fairway-adjacent lots; 200,000 square feet (19,000 m2) of commercial space, 34 apartment suites built to condominium standards, and 266 condominiums, townhomes, and single-family attached ...More...

ARROW_100731_02.JPG: The Arrowhead Landmark:
Located on the hills over San Bernardino,
the Arrowhead has been an important
landmark for centuries. It is believed to be a
natural feature but its true origin is unknown.
The distinctive arrowhead shape is visible
because the white sage, which grows inside
the Arrowhead, contrasts sharply with the
darker chaparral vegetation outside.
Many fires have burned the landmark resulting
in gully erosion. Check dams have been
constructed in an effort to slow down the erosion
process and help protect and preserve
the Arrowhead outline. Bushes were planted
on the outline for this same purpose.

2010 photos: Equipment this year: I mostly used the Fuji S100fs until the third one broke and I started sending them back for repairs. Then I used either the Fuji S200EHX or the Nikon D90 until I got the S100fs ones repaired. At the end of the year I bought a Nikon D5000 but I returned it pretty quickly.
Trips this year: I've got so many local commitments that I'm having trouble getting away. I drove out to Lexington, Kentucky to cover the Civil War Preservation Trust's annual conference in June. I flew out to California and Nevada for two weeks in July for the San Diego Comic-Con. I flew to Nashville to cover the Civil War Preservation Trust's Grand Review conference in September.
My office at the main Commerce Department building closed in October and I was shifted out to the Bureau of the Census in Suitland Maryland. It's good to have a job of course but that killed being able to see basically any cultural events during the day. There's basically nothing of interest that you can see around the Census building.
Number of photos taken this year: about 395,000..
