We enjoyed this beautiful lake. We saw a bald eagle and some trumpeter swans. This lake is above the treeline.

We drove by the lake and the sun was sparkling off ice mixed with the almost turquoise colors of glaciers. Very beautiful.

Located in the mountains, this lake is so beautiful, and it is clear. Not to mention the overlook just past it. I wish I could build a house on the edge and have it to myself.

Thank Daniel C
