Okay The title may be slightly deceiving as we didn’t actually go to the top of mount baldy. But..We did go up in our beautiful mountains. We went to one of our favorite getaways. Mirror Lake. It’s been scorching hot here so we made a quick trip to cool off. Are you thinking we rode up on these…..think again…giggle. We saw plenty of riders on our little trek though. Couldn’t resist this little tease.
We stopped at one of our favorite rest stops and we were so disappointed to see this. Someone let a campfire get out of control.
There are so many beautiful trees. It’s scary to think how easily they can be destroyed by fire.
A familiar face reminds everyone to be mindful of their campfires.
We kept an eye out for local wildlife…
They run wild here too. Well maybe not so much run as meander slowly.
It was surprising how many bicyclists we saw on the road too. Plenty of signs to remind you to share the road. But I didn’t take photos of any of the riders.
Just as we were arrived we were reminded about just how late our snow stayed with us this year. Yes, That is snow!
When we saw this sign we knew we had arrived!
There it is mirror lake! Isn’t it just beautiful.
and this my sweet bloggy friends is Mount Baldy. I know someone is thinking why do they call it mount baldy. We have a theory, well I do, it’s mostly rocks at the top, so no trees, hence..( do you like the use of the word hence here) bald…But truly I don’t know the answer. It may have something to do with it being a high peak.
Everything smelled so wonderful, like pine.
Most of us have some type of fear, or in my case ,I have a few. Bears are at the top of the list.
I had my book club book with me!
We had a lovely day, just being together in such a beautiful place. Pure Bliss.
Watch for the new giveaway announcement on Saturday!
