Emerald Cave on Colorado River - Thanks to the remarkable power of science and nature working together, this beautiful spot lives up to its name with photogenic emerald green waters on sunny days. The emerald hue doesn’t come from algae in the water, it occurs as a result of the sun’s reflection off of the surrounding cavern’s yellow-brownish walls and the blue of the sky combining to create a stunning emerald green appearance.
