"Emerald Lake: Instead, however, of returning by road, one can descend from the summit of the Yoho Pass to Emerald Lake, a lovely little gem of green water nestling in the forest and completely surrounded by lofty peaks, whose green-ribboned glaciers can be seen protruding from the rocky cirques of the upper slope. Mount Burgess dominates this beautiful lake."
