Nothing says seasonal scenery like awesome winter vibes! The Canadian Rockies have some of the most beautiful scenes in any season, but there is something truly magically about winter. While I typically feature wide landscapes, the icicles were too amazing not showcase.
Spent the night at an out of the way hostel in Yoho National Park, and the next day we walked to Takakkaw Falls. I'd highly recommend the Whiskey Jack Wilderness Hostel for its great location and accessibility to hiking trails and awesome views.

We're heading back to the Canadian Rockies today after 3 weeks romping in the US desert and we're getting pretty excited to get back to our little mountain home of Canmore. Soon the snow will begin to melt, the ice will thaw, and fresh signs of spring will trickle through the mountains once again 🌷
Emerald Lake in Yoho National Forest, British Columbia, Canada. The amazing turquoise color of the water is due to the sediment suspended in the water. It is called rock flour, created by glaciers moving slowly over mountain surfaces. The fine sediment is trapped in the glacial ice until the glacier melts and the rock flour is deposited in mountain lakes and rivers. The amazing colors you see are actually caused by sunlight being reflected back to our eyes. The long wave colors of the spectrum, the reds, oranges and yellows are absorbed by the water. The shortest light waves, the purples and indigos, are absorbed by the rock flower. The remaining light gets reflected back to our eyes as mainly greens and some blues, hence the beautiful turquoise color. Pretty amazing! #emeraldlake#yohonationalpark#bccanada#glaciers
