One of the classic symbols of the Canadian Rockies is Peyto Lake, which is situated adjacent to Icefields Parkway, the road which connects Banff and Jasper. Peyto Lake is a popular stop with travelers who enjoy taking in this panoramic view from Bow Summit.
The lake is glacier fed, the glacial silt giving it a lovely milky turquoise-green color. It sits at 1860 m (6100 ft) above sea level.
