"Summit Lake: Summit Lake lies along the pass by which the Yoho Valley is reached from Emerald Lake. It is a green little lake, smaller than Emerald, and lies embowered in the cool green forest. The great crags of Mount Wapta tower above it. Gazing down, the visitor can see far below the flashing waters of Emerald Lake."
