Peyto Lake, Icefields Parkway, Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada 01

Description : One of the world,s most spectacular sights, the soft baby blue waters of Peyto Lake and the rugged beauty of the Mistaya River valley stretching out before your eyes beneath a sea of distant peaks.

Peyto Lake is fed by the meltwaters of Peyto Glacier off to the left of the viewpoint, and the glacial silt (the fine rock particles ground up by the glacier as it passes over the land below it) floats out into the lake reflecting the magnificent robin,s egg colour you see. The lake is named after William Wild Bill Peyto, a pioneer guide in the area and one of the park,s first game wardens.
