Emerald Lake Lodge – Yoho National Park, Canada

Yoho National Park in British Colombia, Canada lies just West of the more famous Banff National Park. Emerald Lake is the largest of the lakes found in that area and, as you can see, is breathtakingly beautiful.

A friend and I had some time to spend there whilst on our way to Edmonton. We saw some awesome scenery.

In the summer months you can rent canoes here, but in the winter the lake is frozen solid and becomes a popular cross country ski destination.

This area is high on my list of places to return to. Not only to spend more time (we only had one day here), but I’d love to see it in other seasons as well. We chatted to the folk in the boathouse who told us that in fall, when the sun sets lower, many evenings put on a spectacular alpenglow display that sees the tips of the mountains light up in the most fantastic colors. Having seen this scenery, I can imagine what that must look like and makes me want to go back.
