A friend and I planned a 3 day trip into Tonquin Valley in Jasper National Park back in January for the fall of 2019. As the days got shorter and colder, we started to dial in some details of our trip. It wasn’t until I looked at the long-term forecast that I was hit with the realization of exactly what we would be up against. Rain was forecasted every day for the two weeks leading up to and including our trip. The trail was going to be a nightmare. So, after a lot of back and forth, we ultimately decided to suck it up and cross our fingers for a window of opportunity to see the famed Ramparts rising out of Amethyst Lake. We arrived late the night before and slept in a hostel nearby. I had hopes of photographing Mt. Edith Cavell that morning but upon waking up we saw quickly that the mountain was covered in rain and cloud. So, we ditched that idea, hopped into the car, and drove to the only area that was getting any light, Pyramid Mountain. We rushed to try and catch the sunrise (having missed alpenglow), managing to arrive with just minutes to spare, catching the morning light on the Pyramid Mountain reflecting perfectly in a calm Patricia Lake.
