Moraine Lake is a glacially-fed lake in Banff National Park. The lake, being glacially fed, does not reach its crest until mid to late June. When it is full, it reflects a distinct shade of blue. The color is due to the refraction of light off the rock flour deposited in the lake on a continual basis.
Location: Moraine Lake Banff National Park Alberta, Canada
