The first time we visited Yosemite Valley, California was 15 years ago. We took a trail to Mirror Lake and were very disappointed to find out there was no water at all in the so called lake. We've been to Yosemite Valley many times since and have taken many different trails but never made it back to Mirror Lake until this past spring. To our surprise, it was filled with water, and it's mirror like quality were quite evident, on this day at least, when observing the reflection of the rock domes in the background. Mirror Lake actually only holds water in spring and early summer. Photo taken on May 24, 2006.
