  glacier blue
by zrim

I have not seen all of the alpine lakes accessible only by trail. I have not seen Mt. Assiniboine. But I saw a lot and for my money, Peyto Lake overlook takes home the blue ribbon. To me, the lake looks like a liquid glacier. As if it was emptied and filled by galcier melt only this past spring.

Address: Ice Field Parkway # 93 Highway.
Directions: On Higway 93 turn off to Bow summit to Peyto Lake Viewpoint, it is 190 Km from Jasper.
