Our tour guide used the Emerald Lake Viewpoint to turn back to Carcross and it made an excellent photo opportunity. The color of the lake is amazing and the surrounding wilderness is breathtaking.

This is a true gem - we were lucky that our tour bus driver stopped to show us this beauty! Although we didn't get to see a ranch etc - just stopping to see the lake was breathtaking!
