August Monthly Lunch Meeting and Drive
Mirror Lake Scenic Byway
Date & Time: Saturday, August 6, 11:30 AM
Location: Kamas Park
(not the main city park by the rodeo grounds)
Address: 100 East 100 South, Kamas Utah
We will meet for the monthly lunch meeting at a small park in Kamas. Bring your own lunch and camp chairs. There is a small pavilion in the park but we have not reserved it so if unavailable we will meet under some large trees and enjoy our lunch there. If you plan on getting an apple fritter or other treat from Mirror Lake Bakery at the Chevron, please get it before the meeting as we will not be driving by the Chevron after the meeting.
Drive: After the meeting we will drive Hwy150 to Mirror Lake. There are a couple of options once we reach Mirror Lake:
Option 1. Enjoy a 1.5 mile walk around the lake. It took Doyle and I 50 minutes to leisurely stroll around the lake but pretty sure Hank and Rexanne would do it in 30 minutes or less ;-). There is a $6.00 fee or leave your National Park Senior Pass on your dashboard if staying at the lake for any length of time.
Option 2. Drive leaders will wait 20 minutes for a restroom break and short views of the Lake, again you can use your National Parks Senior Pass (or watch you car carefully if you don’t have a pass and not paying the fee). Then we head back down towards Kamas stopping at Provo River Falls (mile marker 24). The drive ends here and everyone can make their own way home after visiting the falls for as long as you want.
Option 3. Head back with the drive leaders but bypass the Provo River Falls stop.
Option 4. Not waiting for the drive leaders at Mirror Lake and heading straight home.
Drive time from Kamas to Mirror Lake is approximately 50 minutes. Hope to see you there!
