WHAT A SPECTACULAR SETTING!

Lake Louise is fed by glacial runoff from Victoria Glacier, seen in the pictures on this page. Like many of the lakes in the Rockies the water is either deep green or blue. This is caused by fine sediments called "rock flour" floating in the water. Rock flour is fine powdery rock that has been crushed and ground by a glacier. Lake Louise is a beautiful green color, but Peyto Lake, (further north on the Icefields Parkway) is a rich baby blue color.
