Mirror Lake Rapids: View Video
Latitude: 44.56920   Longitude: -91.66871
We are calling this Mirror Lake Rapids because Mirror Lake is better known than Peeso Creek (the main creek that feeds into Mirror Lake... another smaller creek called Brownlee Creek also feeds into this lake).  The rapids is quite small, but Buffalo County does not have many falls and rapids so we "reached" a bit to include this site.  Our photos were taken in December, undoubtedly there would be more flow in the spring!  Mirror Lake is located 2 blocks North of U. S. Highway 10 in downtown Mondovi, Wisconsin on N. Eau Claire Street.  Mirror Lake effluent drops into an intake just above the dam and drops down into a culvert that goes under the dam, so there is no spillway below the dam.  To find the rapids go one block North of U. S. Highway 10 on N. Eau Claire Street, turn right on Vine Street and go to its end one block East.  On the North side of the turn-around at the end of Vine Street you will find a good path that will lead you directly to the rapids about 200 feet off the street.

Links & Helpful Hints...
Before you visit a waterfall it is helpful to know the surrounding landscape... we use two free internet services to help.  www.topoquest.com provides free topo maps which can be enlarged and printed.  Access Topoquest and then click "find maps" on their website, put in GPS from our data (without the minus sign), click "search", then click on the first USGS map that has a DRG name, click on the map itself and select zoom level.  To navigate the area... if you want to look at an area left of the map, click on the left edge of the map, etc.  Below each map will be a listing of features shown on the map... a little work and you will learn their system (sometime clicking on the edge will not take you to an adjacent map).
---------------
We also use Google Earth.  It is a free service you can download at https://www.google.com/earth/.  Like Topoquest, you put in GPS data (or city, or county and state) and it will "fly" you to the location requested. 
---------------
There are lots of internet sites that list facts about Wisconsin... one of the best is the Wisconsin DNR site http://dnr.wi.gov/ which has all kinds of info.  Another good site is www.discoverwisconsin.com.
