DID YOU KNOW:
As the melt water from a glacier that feeds a lake starts to flow in the spring time it carries with it glacier silt or rock flour. The sunlight that reflects off this rock flour is what gives a lakes the spectacular turquoise blue or emerald green colour.
CLIMATE & WHEN TO GO:
Given the higher temperatures, the best time to go is June to September. If you're a fan of semi-frozen lakes head out as early as late April / early May.
