Emerald Pools Hike

Back to the Travel Directory

We started the hike on the bridge at the bottem of the picture.
We have been climbing for about 20 minutes.

We are about half way up to the pools.
There is a stable down below. Can you see the group with horses crossing the river?

It is 105 degrees today and sunny.
Whenever we found shade we would rest and drink water.

Still hiking.

We made it to the emerald pools! (puff, puff...)
I forgot to take a picture of the pools!

We came down a different way.
This way was shorter but had may steps and narrow crevices.

A great end to a two hour hike in the heat.
They said that the water was 74 degrees at this point.
It is colder up canyon.
