Alps Alturas Lake

This lake is about 1500 metres above the elevation of Slocan Lake. Despite its small size, it is incredibly cold, even at the end of the summer.

Absolutely worth the slog. Were you alone up there, or does the beauty of the area mean there's an Everest-like queue of hikers?

We met two other parties during our 4-hour hike. But it was the last weekend in August, just past the peak of the wildflowers. One would expect fairly "heavy traffic" on such a day!
