This is a photograph of Upper Grinnell Lake; Grinnell Glacier can be seen at the far left in the photo. Not too long ago, all of this was the Grinnell Glacier. As the glacier has receded, the lake was formed. The appearance of the lake is striking for a couple of reasons. One obviously is the presence of the floating ice, which has broken off from the glacier. The other is the striking color of the water, which is due to the presence of glacial flour. That is the name of the finally ground particles of rocks that are picked up by the glaciers. These particles remain suspended in the water causing the distinctive turquoise color.
Like cold water to a weary soul is good news from a distant land. Proverbs 25:25
