Mirror Lake

National Parks all over the world have there version of  a Mirror Lake … You have Lake Placid in New York State, Mirror Lake State Park Wisconsin, Mirror Lake Kootenays in BC Canada and Mirror Lake at Lake Matheson in NZ an many many more throughout.

MIrror Lake at Yosemite National Park California is a seasonal lake and comes very close to disappearing due to sediment accumulation. The lake sits at the bottom of the Valley at an elevation of 4098 feet. I guess the best times to visit would be right after the snow melt or very early summer. We got lucky as even though it was the middle of the Northern Hemisphere’s Fall season, the park was extremely dry, if not for the full day of continual rain on our 2nd day there most of the images would be without waterfalls and rivers …
