One of Todd & my favorite places to camp is Mirror Lake, Utah.  For me, it is  nostalgic for it was my deceased fathers favorite fishing lake and it brings fun memories of him while I am here.  It saddens me a little being here, for I remember this lake with the mountain below bald mountain as lush and green as a teenager.  A few years ago a Japanese Beetle was bought in and it has really taken a tole on this whole area.  This lake however still has its charm.  Bald Mountain looming in the background, and the Hayden Peak on the East lights up beautifully at sunset. I woke up to a beautiful view of Bald Mountain each morning, and one day I decided I am going to the top of that mountain today.  Here is the blog post of my hike to the top of Bald Mountain.


To get to Mirror lake, you go to Kamas, and head East.  I would highly recommend making sure you download google map of the area before heading in and have yourself an external GPS unit connected to your phone.  Here are 3 great external GPS units that would give you confidence when you head into the back country.  If you also hate being out of contact with loved ones for multiple days, the 4 Garmin In Reach Explorer is a great assess to be able to send two way text messages when you are out of cell range through GPS.  It is very cool and handy to have.

When we got here, the first thing we did was jump in our Kayaks and paddle around the beautiful lake.

Throw your VR google on and take a ride around the lake.  Click on View on Google Maps, and check it out through your cardboard googles.

The shore line is beautiful all around the lake.  The clear water, the beautiful rocks and ever green, and flowers are just very relaxing and wonderful.

Around Sunset, I took a stroll around the lake to the North, West, and the South side.  The sunset made the Hayden Mountain range gorgeous.

There were such a fun variety of Purple, yellow and red flowers all around the lake.

The more you look at these White Lousewort flowers, the more intriguing they are.  They are so cool how the petal spirals.

Look around to the east and see Hayden peak all lite up bright.

TODD FLY FISHING



Videos of Todd working on figuring out Fly Fishing.  He fly fished from shore, in the water with waiters, and from his Kayak and had a wonderful time.  He caught 3 pretty fish (2 rainbows and a brookie), and had a fabulous time.

UPPER PROVO RIVER FALLS


There is so much beauty around us, I am constantly amazed.  My highlights of my few days in the Unitas was Kayaking and walking around Mirror Lake which was relaxing and beautiful.

   Hiking Bald Mountain was not super hard, but a rush of adrenaline being on such edges of the mountain side and awesome uniqueness in cool rocks formations that I have yet to see the like.

 Upper Provo river was nice to explore more than just the first few waterfalls, and was a pretty hike the whole mile down river.
