Located just outside of Vancouver and a little south of Whistler, the lake’s all-blue hue reflects the gorgeous trees and mountains surrounding the water. The area is exquisite from any angle, as is the rest of the surrounding Garibaldi Park area.
Viewed as one of British Columbia’s best places to hike, the lake is situated right underneath Mt. Garibaldi volcano, which has been around for roughly 500,000 years. It’s also an awesome area for going exploring or swimming in the the gorgeous turquoise waters.The reason the water is so blue is because of “vibrational transitions” aka a “fun mix of photons and electrons” for all you non-science-y people out there.
