Nighttime at the boathouse on Emerald Lake

The boathouse on Emerald Lake - © Christopher Martin-4131

Bobbi and I got away to Emerald Lake last weekend for a little retreat.  The valley is in the Yoho National Park in British Columbia, about two and a half hours from Calgary.  We had a great time enjoying time on the land and enjoying the fine amenities offered by the Emerald Lake Lodge.  We have to thank both sets of grandparents for taking care of Kezia and Kian.  I spent most of the night out photographing around the water.  The image above is looking down the stairs to the boathouse where you can rent canoes and row boats to take out on the lake.  There was a wedding in the lodge where Cilantro’s restaurant is located across the bridge.  The lights from the party and the bridge illuminated the little cabin and the stacked boats.  Emerald Lake is a wonderful place to visit – we are already plotting our next return visit.
