It is the third deepest lake in North America and the tenth deepest lake in the world. This breathtakingly blue lake is so clear that in some places objects can be  seen to depths of 75 feet! The reason the lake is so blue is that the thin, clear mountain air allows the lake’s pure, crystalline water to reflect the blue sky above. The lake can also appear red during sunsets or gray-black during storms.
