Mirror Lake
Total distance walked: 3.2 miles

On the first Wednesday of each month my photo group and I get together for photoshoots. This May we chose to photograph the dogwood blooms in Yosemite. Much to our dismay we were too late, the blooms were gone. Instead, we photographed whatever caught our eye as we hiked the horse trail to Mirror Lake.

On the return hike, two of us took a separate way back from the group. Lucky us, we found a couple of trees that still had its blooms.

Even though we missed seeing the springtime show of dogwood blooms, it was still a pleasant morning spent with friends enjoying the priceless natural beauty of Yosemite.
