Peyto Lake in the Canadian Rocky Mountains

Peyto Lake in the Canadian Rocky Mountains
The lake really is that colour. The colour is caused by the glacier grinding down minerals in the stones so that only the turquoise is reflected. I heard on CBC radio that the glaciers are disappearing, so the lakes may lose their colour in about twenty years.
