This lake is ever changing and so beautiful. The colors come from the light reflecting off of the marl at the bottom of the lake. Pictures don't do it justice, it is a must see.

Just a great sight to see ! It's right on the highway, with a convenient, safe, pullout to stop, park and take pictures if you want to.

Pictures don't do it justice. The water was so deeply colored and the surrounding area was a wonderful setting for this lake. A few lucky people lived nearby and they were the envy of those of us who were taking pictures/

Incredible viewing area from the highway. I suggest going before noon for best colors. Take lots of pictures!

We saw it in its Emerald best, still waters with mountain reflections and just a little cloud to add to the magic of the Lake..
