Alpenglo


Alpenglo is a beautiful phenomenon of light that we are lucky enough to enjoy most evenings in Grand County. As sunset approaches, the mountains begin to glow pink and lavender. Then as the sun drops behind the mountains the pink and lavendar are transferred to the clouds. Those colors are joined by intense pastel hues of peach and yellow and set against the blue-grey sky. When the forground is the sparkling midnight blue of one of the lakes, it's even more beautiful. For those who have never experienced alpenglo, that alone is a reason to visit Grand County.
