Turquoise Treat

Larger, better view?

 

Peyto Lake as seen from Bow Summit, the highest point in Icefields Parkway (2085m/6840').

 

Peyto lake is a glacier-fed lake in the Waputik Range of Alberta Rockies. It is a part of the Banff National Park, accessed from the Icefields Parkway. The brilliant turquoise blue color comes from suspended glacial rocks.

A sight to see, indeed.
