Glacial Water

Glacial Water, originally uploaded by ParsecTraveller.

Second Lake, near Big Pine, California.

This lake is fed by meltwater from one of the southernmost glaciers in the United States, the Palisade Glacier. The finely crushed rock washed downstream from the glacier gives the lake its milky, turquoise color.

It looks unreal. I have seen lakes in the Alps, but none this color for sure.

What a lovely color, very minty.

Really beautiful. Reminds me of when I visited Alaska about 10 years ago.
