Well folks, to say we saw beauty is an understatement. We will have a life time of cherished memories and pictures to help us remember the incredible journey we took on our Alaska cruise. I am so grateful that we booked our dog sled tour before we left home. I went with the suggestion from our travel agent and it was the best choice.
We spent 8 long hours with our tour guide who stopped so many times so we could take pictures and answer our questions. I have so many posts to post still.
This particular post is only on the incredible Emerald Lake in the Yukon. It is and has been owned by a German family for many years. You can see the beauty they wake up to each day. The unfortunate part of this story, is that you can't swim in the lake nor does anything grow in the lake. The lake is filled with iron, brought down from the mountains. You will see it along the road tours we took in the Yukon and also in Alaska communities as we cruised along.
The Tracy Arms Glacier has beautiful green sea, actually many different kinds of green. Sometimes the colour was divided by the ice flows so some parts were more green than others.
This particular lake had vibrant emerald green as well as darker and other types of green. I hope we captured the true essence of the colour of Emerald Lake and I hope you enjoy viewing what we enjoyed so much.
|This took our breath away! Look at this beauty, what lucky people who have their home here.|
|Really, do I need to say anything at all here! See the pure clue of the sky & the emerald of the lake.|
|The different colour green was amazing! It truly was a wonder of nature to us.|
|I think I will make this one into a big picture. It is so clear and incredible! Don't you agree?|
|WOW is all I can say.|
|This is the home of the people of the Emerald Lake. Lucky them to get up to see this each day.|
|A home through the woods.|
|Layla matches the loveliness of the lake.|
|She almost has that secret smile, like she knows something I don't.|
|We wanted to get a close up so you can see the different greens.|
|This was taken from our bus. I just had to get a picture before we actually got out.|
The rail post is where we visitors place our little round stickers from our Tour Company.
|MMMMM, so lovely and surreal.|
|I love this picture. It seems divided by the light green in the middle, like glasses.|
|See, here it is again. Gosh this is beautiful!|
|This was a lake we passed on the way while in Alaska. The green from the iron makes the colour.|
|This is another view of this small green lake in Alaska. Beautiful!|
