A little more climbing out of South Crater and up the side of Red crater (see photos for name explanation) we reached our highest point at Red Crater summit (6200ft). From here we headed down to the Emerald Lakes, the uniqueness of these lakes meant the crowds on the crossing were focussed here and it was difficult to try and capture the scenery without some one wandering ...

... up beside us taking it all in as well and as we look at one of them, they have a Montreal Canadiens hat on. He was from Belgium. His friend with him was from Montreal. There are Montreal Canadiens fans everywhere! Can't say that about the leafs now, Chad, Garfield & Travis. :) From here, it was literally all down hill from there.
