Description: This lake is one of the Rockies true gems. Formerly on the Canadian $20 bill, it has been formed by a landslide from the surrounding Tower of Babel. This material may have been transported some distance atop glacial ice and deposited here. Scientists still debate whether it has any connection to a moraine.
