Hiking to Emerald Lake

Emerald Lake

 Elevation: 10360  Feature: Lake
Notes: I love the color of Emerald Lake. I could just stare at it for hours. The lake is at the base of the Timp Glacier, so depending on the time of the year, it might be turquoise blue, or green. It often has red streaked snow (watermelon snow) around it. During busy times of the year, TERT will station volunteers at the shelter to aid others who might need help.
