Everything was caught up at the campground so we decided to take advantage of the nice weather and check out Mirror Lake area. To get there we go thru Tincup, so we had lunch at Frenchy's in Tincup, and then stopped by again on the way back for some really good pie with vanilla ice cream.

ATV's are everywhere around here, and I have to say that we're more than a little interested in getting one. Melvin took Nancy and I for a short ride off road in one of his and both of us enjoyed it. Now we have to figure out how to take one with us if we were to decide to get one. That could be a big problem. Any ideas would be welcome. We'll keep you posted on this.

Mirror Lake is at about 11,000 ft elevation.

We'll let the pictures tell the rest of this story.
