Bear Mountain Hike is Short, but offers Long-Distance Views

I seldom rush on any hike, unless the mosquitoes are driving me crazy, or there’s a delicious meal waiting for me when I get home. But on this September evening a few years ago as I scrambled up the trail to Bear Mountain that looms above Mirror Lake, I was in a race with light. I could see the clouds were arraying for a beautiful sunset and I was determined to make it in time.
