Mount Robson Provincial Park
My brother and I explored Mount Robson Park in late September hiking along the Berg Lake trail. An aggressive three day trip from Edmonton with ten hours of driving and close to 40 miles of hiking
Mount Robson is known for its terrible weather, but we had several days of sunshine and no wind. The storms from the previous week had Emperor Falls going strong late in the season.
We camped for two nights at the popular Berg Lake Campground, the other campsites along the trail were mostly empty in late September.
My favorite memory from our time in the park was the night climb to Mumm Basin for sunrise (4 miles return, 1000ft).
The longest dayhike from camp at Berg Lake goes to Snowbird Pass (14 miles return, 2500ft). The trail goes above and alongside the Robson Glacier, where we stopped to have lunch before climbing further to the pass.

The British Columbia/Alberta divide at the top of the pass. The enormity of the Reef Icefield is impressive, ice stretching as far as we could see in both directions.
