If you are all about seeing the beautiful blue lake water of Montana’s incredible mountain lakes, you should try checking out Grinnell Lake at Glacier National Park. The water in this lake is said to have the state’s bluest water, according to Only In Your State’s website.
…there’s something truly surreal about Glacier National Park’s Grinnell Lake. Catching a first glimpse of it from over a hillside after a good hike takes your breath away… it’s so beautifully blue that it looks turquoise. In a state full of stunning lakes and rivers, this body of water really stands out.
Apparently the “natural phenomenon” that causes the lake’s turquoise color occurs when the silt moves from the Grinnell Glacier into the lake and that color shows up when it mixes with the water. It is said to be tropical-like. If you’re planning on heading to check out the lake, here’s some information for you:
Typically hikers will have until late October to take the Grinnell Lake Trail to the lake. This is one of the most beautiful hikes in the entire park, if not the entire Northwest. The trail, which is well-maintained, takes you beneath the massive melting glacier with sweeping views of hillsides, waterfalls and wildlife. It’s not uncommon to see floating icebergs in the lake from the melting glacier.
