An easily reached emerald green lake surrounded by a secluded aspen forest? Count us in.

Depending on the time of day, Patricia Lake has many appearances.

A lake surrounded by pines and trembling aspens , the early morning magically reflects the blues of the sky and multi-toned mountains surrounding it, interrupted once in a while by morning mist.

By early morning until the lake evening, the lake reveals itself to be crystal clear with emerald green hues that are impossibly vivid. And by sunset, the golden hour and pink sky hues stretch across the lake's placid waters once again.

Any place this beautiful is a dream to explore and even more ideal explorations take place beyond the shoreline.

With plenty of launch spots from a rocky shoreline and ample lakeside parking it's easy to get in your boat on this lake.

Find food nearby at the Pyramid Lake Resort or just 10 min down the road in Jasper town site.
