Reflection

There are different types of reflections
On this meme we usually deal with reflections off a shinny surface like the reflection here off June lake.  But I never travel the June Lake Loop without experiencing another type of reflection, one of the mind.
When we arrive at this picnic site at Silver Lake I remember a day over 20 years ago and a picnic with my parents.
Jim Wagner

That day I captured some of my favorite images of my dad,
Pat Wagner

My mom
Jules  
And my spouse.
My parents are both gone now but I cherish their memory and these images of a wonderful day at Silver Lake.
