Pictures will never do justice the astounding lakes of the Canadian Rockies. The bright blues & turquoise colors are so vivid and surreal every picture we took looks fake or photoshopped (we swear they are not!).  The unique colors are formed as the sun bounces of the rock flower which is deposited into the lakes year round. This substance is formed from the constant erosion of bedrock...
