Travel Photo of the Day: Canadian Rockies-Bluest Lake Ever!

Share this with your friends

Morraine Lake in Canada

No Joke! The lakes we encountered in the Canadian Rockies were really this blue! We didn’t photoshop these colors!

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 by the glaciers. Very few lakes give off these intense blue colors so for those wanderlusters in North America, the Canadian Rockies is the best place to explore them. Similar lakes can be found in Northern Europe in countries such as Norway. Our travel club will plan another trip here soon so keep your eye’s peeled!
