A few days ago we meet Jack a hunter that hunts in Wasatch National Forest and he told us that in this area there are hundreds of high altitude lakes and a beautiful waterfall.
“hundreds of lakes”??? I questioned , so we decided to take a look.
We of course did visit 600 lakes but on Mile Post 27 We saw 3 beautiful lakes one next to another in a spitting distance from the parking .
and while having our picnic Shula spotted a bird nest way up the tree,I have no idea what kind of birds they are but it sure was nice to take this shot.
Well we found it….and it is not lost any more
And Lily Lake
So if you like to: fish,hike,ride 4X4,ride horses,swim,camp of hooks-go and visit this area.
The scenery is breathtaking along this 34 miles and if I only visit 3 lakes a day ,it will take me 200 Days to see them all…
At mile post 24 and very close to the parking area Provo River Falls can be found, it has 3 falls one after the other and the good thing is that it is easy to walk on the rocks and follow the falls/stream both directions, thay are not high but very impressive.
The water is cold but inviting, so bring your hiking sandals with you.
At the entrance to the Mirror Lake Scenic byway lays 2 beautiful towns Heber City and Midway,they both worth a visit at the beginning or at the end of the drive and to get some good ice-cream at the Gellato place on the main drag in Heber City.
Heber City also has a collection of buildings from the good old days and they look cool…
If you meet Jack the hunter ,listen to his advice ,we did it and we love it.
