Waterfall below Mirror Lake, Blanchard Springs Arkansas

Waterfall below Mirror Lake, Blanchard Springs Arkansas

I took a trip to Blanchard Springs this week. I have heard about the waterfalls below Mirror Lake, and have been looking for an opportunity to go see them for sometime. I was surprised to discover the ruins of an old mill near the waterfall. Mirror Lake is actually a man made lake. with a small dam that creates the waterfall. The Civilian Conservation Corps built the stone and concrete dam that created the lake during the 1930s.
The water was pretty high on my first trip out, and I am looking forward to going back.
