Delta, Peyto Lake
by Allen Pope
Meltwater from the Peyto Glacier (Alberta, Canada) flows from the glacier, through braided stream beds, and dumps into Peyto Lake. All the while it is both picking up and dumping sediments of many sizes and shapes. As the water goes from high-energy stream to low-energy lake, the water mixing and sediment sorting is clear: turbid, sediment-filled brown plumes finger in to the lake, itself a brilliant teal with only glacial flour still in suspension.
