I remember every year as a little girl taking annual camping trips during the summer to Yosemite National Park, CA. We would walk the trail up to Mirror Lake and have picnics. So as a mom, I wanted to share these fond memories with my children. The landscape had changed drastically over the years but never the less just as beautiful as I had remembered. Yosemite offers free shuttles rides through the park and one of the stops is Mirror Lake. From the bus stop it is a mile or so hike up to the lake.
