"Lakes in the Clouds: An easy walk, or delightful pony ride, is that to the Lakes in the Clouds. Leaving the west end of the hotel, an excellent trail rises 1,000 feet to Mirror Lake, and thence, rather more steeply, another 225 feet past the Bridal Veil Falls to Lake Agnes. These lakes, situated among scenes of the wildest beauty, lie like jewels on the bosom of the mountains, and their calm, placid surfaces breathe peace and quietness. Both lakes are seen in this picture, and also, from left right, Mount Aberdeen (10,340 feet), Mount Lefroy (11,220 feet), the Beehive (7,430 feet) and Victoria (11,355 feet)."
