Emerald Lake in British Columbia, Canada
Yoho National Park
Emerald Lake is a top ten photography hot spot location. We are not sure how many top ten places we have discovered, but it might be more than ten. 🙂 The color of the lake will blow your mind. The spectacular colors will make incredible dynamic images. The one above is an award winner. How can you not get a top ten shot here? If you are not sure that you can, you can go with Pamela Goodyer and Extra Eyes Photo Tours in June, and she will be sure you get the most outstanding shot of your lifetime.
Emerald Lake is located in Yoho National Park, British Columbia, Canada. It is the largest of Yoho’s 61 lakes and ponds and one of the park’s premier tourist attractions. Emerald Lake Lodge, a high-end lodge perched on the edge of the lake, provides local accommodation. A 5.2 km (3.2 mi) hiking trail circuits the lake, the first half of which is accessible to wheelchairs and strollers. During the summer months, canoe rentals are available; in the winter, the lake is a popular cross-country skiing destination.
Due to its high altitude, the lake is frozen from November until June. The vivid turquoise color of the water, caused by powdered limestone, is most spectacular in July as the snow melts from the surrounding mountains.
