Bow Lake

Bow Lake lies along the Bow River in the beautiful Canadian Rockies of Banff National Park.  Even on this cloudy day, the waters are gorgeous turquoise (due to glacial flour).  Crowfoot Glacier (seen above) supplies water to the Bow River.  (Glaciers in the Bow River Valley supply a fraction of water to the river, snowmelt being the largest contributor.) 

a perfect spot for a picnic

PS:  I accidentally deleted this post when I already had some comments!    eerrrrrrgghhh!  I searched and searched how to restore it.  Nothing worked.  I had a tab open with the post on it, so I copied and pasted.
I love comments and am sad to loose some, so here are the original ones:
