Reflections on Alpine Lake / Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness Area
The Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness is located in south central Montana, with a small portion in northern Wyoming, just north of Yellowstone National Park. The Absaroka Beartooth Wilderness is home to Montana’s tallest peak, the steep rocky mass known as Granite Peak. At 12,799 feet, Granite Peak towers above the Beartooth Plateau. It anchors the Beartooth Range, which stands higher and more rugged than the Absarokas, with many peaks exceeding 12,000 feet (one of them resembles a bear’s tooth). This lake was at over 9500 feet and with crystal clear water maked it perfect for the reflections.
