Emerald Basin - views of Emerald Glacier & some furry friends
They'll be no mistaking when you've arrived - the trail stops at a gigantic natural rocky amphitheatre.
It's a great spot to rest for a while and enjoy the views. Directly in front of you to the north are The President and The Vice President mountains and the Emerald Glacier. To the north-west is Mount Marple and Michael Peak completes the set to the north-east.
Meanwhile all around you are ground squirrels and marmots scurrying among the boulders in the hope of trading photo opportunities for lunch scraps.
When you've had enough of the rodents, head back down the basin trail and complete the lake circuit.
