Today was a beautiful day! We thought we'd get out, take a hike, and enjoy the peace and solitude. Unfortunately, it seemed as if everyone else had the same idea. We drove up to the trailhead for Thunderbird Falls. This is a nice two mile round trip hike. Upon nearing the parking lot trailhead, it was obvious that neither peace nor solitude would be found here. There were cars everywhere! The parking lot was full and people had parked along both sides of the road. We decided to leave this hike for another day and so we headed down toward Mirror Lake.
This 62 acre lake is about thirty minutes north of our home.
