We have lived in Utah since 2002, but I had never been to Mirror Lake. After a recent fishing trip in the area, I decided a scenic drive would be a fun Saturday activity before the start of school. I was right. The drive was beautiful. We enjoyed the cooler mountain air. And, we had fun with some fishing. I understand it is a great highway for fishing due to the vast number of lakes which are frequently stocked (you can find a stocking update here http://wildlife.utah.gov/dwr/fishing/stocking.html). We were not successful, but our kids (10 and 11) had fun.
