This lake in Montana’s Glacier National Park is filled with colorful pebbles and crystal clear, mountain fed water. 

This is one of the most photogenic lakes on the planet! The surrounding terrain is absolutely breathtaking. 

Lake McDonald is the largest lake in Glacier National Park—it stretches 10 miles long and is nearly 500 feet deep, according to the park service. It’s a result of glacial carving that also shaped nearby valleys, which house some spectacular waterfalls.

There are a few factors that come in to play in order for us to be able to see the colorful lake bottom. The lake rarely gets above 50 degrees Fahrenheit at the surface, according to the park service. Those chilly temps temper plankton growth, which then allows visitors to see details at the bottom of the lakes, even as far down as 30 feet or so.

So over winter. Ready for more of this. #glaciernationalpark #montana

As for the rock colors, when the glaciers came, they chipped off rocks from the surrounding mountains which were varied in color, with shades of reds and greens.
