This was a big day out. I woke up at 5am and drove down to Waterton (around 1 hour from Blairmore). I saw two big bucks, a black bear and a grizzly on the trail. I also climbed two mountains each nearly 2700 M. The view of Mount Alderson from Carthew’s summit is probably the most impressive I have seen in the park. It was also a Saturday in Waterton, which meant I was not alone – although the early start meant I hiked in on the Carthew-Alderson trail alone, and made it all the way up Alderson before even seeing anyone else.
