Why Do the Sangre de Christo Mountains Turn Red in the Sunrise?

Watching the mountains turn red during the sunrise is the result of something called Alpenglow. This happens in a few spots around the world, as well as in Colorado's Sangre de Christo range. It causes a red glow near the horizon opposite the sun before it rises above the horizon.
