The Alpenglow

Crowsnest Pass, Alberta

The alpenglow is the light off of the mountains either at sunset or sunrise that gives the landscape the most beautiful colour. In the South Canadian Rockies, there are natural red hues in the mountain rock, which showcase the best alpenglow. This backpacking trip with Uplift Adventures will take you deep into the wilderness near Waterton Lakes National Park to two subalpine lakes. In the evening or late afternoon on the second day, we will take some time to explore the second lake a short distance away. Wake up early to watch the sunrise hit the mountain headwall and illuminate the start of your day. This backpacking trip can be done two different ways. Take out some distance and make it a 2-day backpack, or stick to the 3-day trip and still experience the beautiful alpenglow yourself. This backpack is geared towards an intermediate backpacker.
