Here Are 5 Of The Most Spectacular Mountain Lakes In The U.S.
There’s no sight quite as dazzling as a mountain lake. Here in the U.S., we have several of these natural wonders to enjoy. Some are accessible by hike while others are tucked away in remote locations. Take a look at the following photographs of three of the most spectacular lakes in the entire country:
1. Maroon Lake, Colorado
One of the most picturesque sights in all of Colorado, Maroon Lake is a giant reflective lake framed by two iconic peaks known as the Maroon Bells. This view can be accessed by the 1.9-mile Maroon Lake Scenic Trail.
2. Lake Tahoe, Nevada
We'd be remiss not to mention one of the largest alpine lakes in North America. Just west of Carson City, this lake is a popular destination for travelers. It's no mystery why it's also one of the most highly-photographed attractions in the U.S.
3. Heart Lake, Mount Jo, New York
Nestled in the scenic Adirondacks of New York awaits a relatively little-known alpine lake called Heart Lake. Beautiful all year round, this attraction is especially breathtaking in the summer and fall.
4. Lake Blanche, Utah
Among Utah's endless list of beautiful natural attractions, Lake Blanche stands out as something spectacular in its own right. The Alpine Lake is located in the Twin Peaks Wilderness Area and is a beloved destination for hikers.
5. Lake Clark, Alaska
Last, but certainly not least, we arrive at the ethereal blue waters of Lake Clark in the aptly-named Lake Clark National Park. The color of this water is due to its unique mineral makeup. The result is simply mesmerizing.
