Peyto Glacier

Image from janrik

Near the Bow and Crowfoot Glaciers, Peyto Glacier in Banff National Park can be seen from the Icefields Parkway. The silt it carries melts into Peyto Lake, dyeing it a startling azure blue.

Located at the Continental Divide, this glacier is much studied by scientists, who have survey data on it going back to the 1890s. It too is receding.
