lago Viedma, Patagonia, Argentina

A partial view of Lake Viedma. To the right, a bit of the Viedma Glacier. The characteristic milky green colour of the lake is due to minerals carried over by the glaciers. I remember having seen a very similar phenomenon at the Peyto Lake in the Canadian Rockies.

Vista parcial del lago Viedma. A la derecha, un pedacito del glaciar Viedma. El característico color verde lechoso del lago se debe a sedimentos minerales desprendidos de los glaciares. Recuerdo haber visto algo muy parecido en el lago Peyto en las Rocosas canadienses.
