some of my favorite mountains on the continental divide, viewed from lily mountain! :) between otis and hallett peaks is chaos canyon and lake haiyaha (the panorama above). tyndall’s glacier sits just above emerald lake, which in turn is just ahead of dream lake (also pictured above)
Mount Tongariro’s Emerald Lakes (NZ). The lakes are formed by water gathering in explosion craters. Minerals washed down from the Red Crater, and leached from the surrounding rocks, give the lakes their stunning colour.
