Two Jack Splendor - Banff National Park, Alberta

Two Jack Lake, Banff National Park, Alberta

We had two terrific mornings at Two Jack Lake just outside of the town of Banff. The sunrises were spectacular each morning with great clouds that were lit up in reds and oranges. On the first morning, the light show didn't last too long and we left shortly after the show ended. We had much better luck on the second morning, as the sunrise colors gave way to some extraordinary golden hour light. Several of us went around the lake to explore what was over there. This is what we found that was waiting for us. A great view of Mount Rundle bathed in golden light with a near perfect reflection in the still waters of Two Jack. If you look closely, you can see the tent of someone who camped out overnight on the opposite shore.
