Bow Lake - Banff National Park, Alberta

The turquoise waters of Bow Lake may look inviting, but rest assured they are frigid cold. Step in waist deep and you will surely be short of breath. The silt deposited from melting glaciers is what gives this water its magical colours. In the backdrop is Crowfoot Mountain with a glimpse of the headwaters of Bow glacier to the right of the image. This is an Iconic Alberta lake in Banff National Park.
