Where on Earth Week 21: Bow Lake, Alberta

I wasn’t sure if this picture had enough clues for anyone to get it, but you guys have definitely impressed me. Congratulation to Jim, who successfully guessed that this is a picture of Bow Lake, Alberta. I’ve visited this gorgeous spot several times in my life — it’s located along the picturesque Icefields Parkway, connecting Jasper to Lake Louise. If you’re planning a visit to the Rockies, I highly recommend at least a photo-stop at Bow Lake, and if you have time, stay over at Num-Ti-Jah Lodge, a charmingly rustic inn on the shores of this emerald lake.

By the way, this may have been taken in June, but it’s not always this snowy and miserable.When the sun’s out, you can see that the lake is the most amazing shade of green.
