Window Mountain Lake, Alberta
A steep, rocky trail opening through the trees to a sparkling alpine lake is plenty enough reason to hike. It was so still up there, quiet and sideways sunny, in spite of all the other hikers and even a few people camping and fishing. We decided to come back to camp one day, to find out what this place feels like at night.
