Miner's Basin Lake
Located East of the cabin up in the LaSal mountains, Miner's basin is a family favorite. Out of the way and generally left alone by the maddening crowd, this lake reminds me of the one Andy Griffeth used to take Opie to on Mayberry RFD. Stocked with trout, surrounded by beautiful steep mountain sides, pine trees and Aspen dot the banks. In this shot a slight breeze broke the still on the lake yet a mirror image of the trees is still visible. Two dead trees highlight the beauty of the living trees alongside and seem to draw the eye into the lake.
