On Mirror Lake

  1. Nice setting . . . but I don’t see the mirror.

    • Yeah, I know…wrong time of day, wrong angle for capturing the iconic images, too many people on the lake…etc, etc, etc, that’s still the name of the lake…and I thought it was still a pretty photo…. 🙂

      • Oh, the photo was nice . . . I just felt cheated, is all.

          • Humor . . . remember it’s always about humor (almost always)

          • Of course…but the thread can only go so far before it turns into a comic book. 🙂

  4. Perfectly lovely image, Scott. I can’t help but think it’s these scenes and places that help soothe your soul of the stuff in the previous post.

    • Thank you, Gunta…and yes, being in places like this do soothe my soul of the stuff in that earlier life…the images are transporting, prompting beautiful new memories…. 🙂

  5. Ah, a dreamland you live in, Scott. So absolutely beautiful that it hardly seems real. I love these images. I see so much misery and destruction and hate on TV that it’s such a good feeling to come here. 🙂 When I hear people talking about politics and social issues, I know that I have seen things they could never imagine. That kind of makes us outsiders in our own little worlds, I think. You can’t un-see, but you can see other worlds like the one here. Thanks!

    • Yes, indeed, George…such a dreamland…and an escape from all of those things we’ve seen. I’m glad you’ve enjoyed the photographs and happy to have you along when visiting these beautiful and peaceful worlds. You’re most welcome, too. 🙂

  6. I spent a summer working at Mirror Lake Lodge (back when there was a lodge oh-so-many decades ago!). It was the base camp for a survival group. Few people came to the lake at that time, which made it very secluded. We had midnight water fights under the new moon. You couldn’t see a thing. In twos, we got into a boat and pushed out onto the lake. Then all was silent. We listened for the hushed paddle of an oar while trying to keep ours equally hushed. When we did hear something, we began beating the water with the oars and soaking the other boat while getting soaked ourselves. It was a riot!!! I also climbed Bald Mountain a number of times. It’s an easy climb and the view is beautiful. Mirror Lake was a defining moment in my life. I wondered if you would eventually post about it. Thank you for the trip to the past!

    • I hope you weren’t doing that stuff in canoes or kayaks–no, of course, you said ‘oars.’ Sounds like it was a little scary but a great deal of fun. At least you survived to tell the tale–but again, you were working there and not one of the new folk learning how to survive! What a great experience!

      • When you’re a kid (I was in high school), nothing is scary! Fear didn’t even come into the equation…it was just a “boat load” of fun! Haha!

    • It sounds like you had a wonderful time up there, Dezra…and what fertile ground for creating such beautiful memories. I had spoken with a few people about the lake and had seen it on the map, just a few miles up the road from Provo Falls…another fascinating place…. I’m glad you enjoyed the picture…glad it provoked good memories. 🙂

  7. What a beautiful spot, Scott. Thanks for bringing it to us!

    August 10, 2012 at 5:03 pm

    • Truly beautiful, Gary…and you’re most welcome. 🙂

  8. I’d like to be in a kyak on that lake.

    • My thoughts exactly, Allen…my son and I are contemplating purchasing a canoe together…will probably rent one a couple of times beforehand, though…but it would be wonderful to be out there paddling…maybe fishing…just being….

  9. I wish to be there!

    August 10, 2012 at 10:55 pm

    • Me, too, Pattu…thank you. 🙂

      August 12, 2012 at 7:10 am

  10. Very pretty spot!

    August 10, 2012 at 11:18 pm

    • I thought so, too, Terry…. 🙂

    Beautiful setting – wish I was there.

    August 11, 2012 at 3:45 am

    • Indeed, Victoria…I think you would love it. 🙂

  12. This image reminds me of the lakes I have seen in American movies. Takes me back to childhood movies and seeing those lakes, they are so different to ours.

    • This one is probably very similar to many of the mountain lakes in our country, Leanne…a nice representation, I think.
