After a night in Joseph at a Bed & Breakfast we started our hike to Mirror Lake early Tuesday afternoon. A lot of people at the lake, camps setup about every 20–30 meters along the cliffs overlooking the lake. We avoided the crowds by heading to higher ground setting up camp on the rocks. On Day 2 we hiked over the pass to Minam Lake. Much less crowded but decided to put in a few more miles and found a great campsite along Lostine river. Day 3 was an easy 5 mile hike out.
