Default To phwall: Moraine Lake

G'day Pete!
Thanks for the feedback: according to Wikipedia "The lake gets its color from the refraction of light off the rock flour deposited in the lake on a continual basis". And the rock debris at the base of the each face is presumably just glacial and water erosion actions. Somebody said that people actually ski/snowboard down that almost-vertical tongue of ice & snow at the head of the lake! I'll stick to my idea of a gentle, slow canoe ride! Next time I'm in Canada, I'll probably spend a couple of days here, trying to get the best lights.

Cheers,
Jeff
