Mirror Lake, Uinta Mountains
One of the most popular destinations in the Uinta Mountains of Utah is Mirror Lake. I had to wait a while to get this photo without solid crowd of people surrounding the lake. It is a beautiful place. One of the "tourists" stopped my wife to ask if "the lake was all that there was to see or do?" She said, "Well, yes, we are in a wilderness area." He then asked if there was a bar nearby where he could get a drink. She responded with, "You are in the wrong place in the wrong state." I am not sure why some people end up in the mountains. On two of our last trips, we have been stopped by serious accidents. In one case it was a bike rider who fell and in other, it was a climber who was killed in a fall. This seems like a pattern.
