A quick hike to a new location, Mirror Lake, with my long-time hiking partner, Sonia, was a welcome morning jaunt. The trail was in good condition and there were many wildflowers on the hike including Monkey Flower, Larkspur, Foam Flower, Devil’s Club, Twisted Stalk, Bear Grass, Queen’s Cup, Bunchberry and some late Trillium. At the end of the hike is a majestic lake with Tinkham Peak in the background. A wonderful surprise awaits you if you venture further along the lake shore.
As we hiked back down we ran into a group of toddlers climbing up along with their parental ‘sherpas’.
