Glacial Runoff Waters of Diablo Lake
Yep you guessed it, the surreal color of this water comes from mineral content in the glacial runoff that feeds this reservoir.
I have to correct myself, this is actually Diablo Lake, not Ross Lake. Although it is a part of Ross Lake National Recreation Area. Doh, sorry for the confusion!
