Yoho National Park

 Emerald Lake Lodge

Emerald Lake Lodge

Yoho National Park in British Columbia isn't talked about as much as neighboring Banff and Jasper but it is just as stunning.  Emerald Lake Lodge is a beautiful spot and a great jump off point for many hikes.

From Emerald Lake Lodge we hiked to Hamilton Lake.  It was one of the most challenging hikes of our trip so far with steep switchbacks taking up a bulk of the hike. The lake was frozen over and surrounded with snow.  We brought some snacks and made a charcuterie plate and enjoyed the summer sun while sitting in the snow. 

We stayed at Kicking Horse campground which was surrounded by mountains and glaciers. We rode our bikes around the area and took in the views.
