There was not a breath of wind, the water of Emerald Lake was still and reflecting the magnificent mountains and stately pine trees behind it. The sun was shining and it was a perfect day. However, there was just a glimpse of snow on the peaks, which made me yearn for some cold weather.
The lake was so serene and peaceful and watching the canoes glide past, I wanted to join them. Unfortunately there were so many tourists visiting, that their chattering shattered the experience.
