Summer Views at Yukon's Emerald Lake


Of the thousands of lakes in the Yukon Territory of Northern Canada, one of the most distinctive is Emerald Lake.  When you watch this excellent drone video by contributor WayNorth Drones, you'll see why.  The lake's deep green color is caused by the reflection of light off of a layer of a distinctive type of mud called marl which lays on the bottom of its shallow waters and which was deposited during the last ice age, about 14,000 years ago.  The lake is located in the southern part of the province, off of the South Klondike Highway.
