Moraine Lake has a surface area of 50 hectares and is found within the Valley of the Ten Peaks in Banff National Park, Alberta, Canada. This glacially fed body of water is famous for its vivid shade of turquoise which intensifies during the summer as the water levels rise. The color is due to the refraction of light off the glacial flour deposited in the lake as the ice melt. There are hike trails around park ranging from easy walks to strenuous hikes. The view from the top is known as The Twenty Dollar View as the scene is featured in the 1969 to 1979 Canadian twenty dollar bill.
