Upper Joffre Lake [1]
Canada

The vivid blue natural color of Upper Joffre Lake is a picturesque eyesight as seen from the south end below the Matier & Stonecrop Glaciers in Joffre Lakes Provincial Park, British Columbia.  There are three lakes in the park & this is the upper one fed from ribbon waterfalls coming down from the glaciers above.  Lateral moraines are visible on both sides showing a dramatic decrease in the Matier Glacier since the Little Ice Age ended in 1850, look high up above to see the present level of the glaciers, some 200 meters above.  Look carefully at the four small peninsulas in the water (the furthest two mark the end of the lateral moraines) to spot two noticeable shallow underwater lines spanning across marking terminal moraines of the Matier Glacier, the one closer in view the result of a minor advancement of the glacier pushing up material.

More About Canada

The capital of Canada is Ottawa, in the province of Ontario. There are offically ten provinces and three territories in Canada, which is the second largest country in the world in terms of land area.While politically and legally an independant nation, the titular head of state for Canada is still Queen Elizabeth.On the east end of Canada, you have Montreal as the bastion of activity. Montreal is famous for two things, VICE magazine and the Montreal Jazz Festival. One is the bible of hipster life (disposable, of course) and the other is a world-famous event that draws more than two million people every summer. Quebec is a French speaking province that has almost seceded from Canada on several occasions, by the way..When you think of Canada, you think of . . . snow, right?But not on the West Coast. In Vancouver, it rains. And you'll find more of the population speaking Mandarin than French (but also Punjabi, Tagalog, Korean, Farsi, German, and much more).Like the other big cities in Canada, Vancouver is vividly multicultural and Vancouverites are very, very serious about their coffee.Your standard Vancouverite can be found attired head-to-toe in Lululemon gear, mainlining Cafe Artigiano Americanos (spot the irony for ten points).But here's a Vancouver secret only the coolest kids know: the best sandwiches in the city aren't found downtown. Actually, they're hidden in Edgemont Village at the foot of Grouse Mountain on the North Shore."It's actually worth coming to Canada for these sandwiches alone." -- Michelle Superle, VancouverText by Steve Smith.
