Lake Louise (Lake Louise) in Banff national Park (Canada)

Lake Louise (Lake Louise) is located in Banff national Park in Canada, the southern canadian Rockies. The lake area is 0.8 sq km, a length of about 2 km, width 0.5 km Its unusual bright color water in it has acquired through the rock brought by streams from the glaciers. First, the lake was named Emerald, but it was later renamed lake Louise in honor of Princess Louise – daughters of Queen Victoria and wife of the Governor-General of the canadian colonies of great Britain.

In 1882, Tom Wilson, one of the experts who built the Canadian Pacific Railway in the area of the village of Laggan (the former name of the station Lake Louise), once he heard a distant noise, and the Indian guide informed him that the drone emits a huge white mountain that rises above the “lake of little fishes”. When the next morning Tom Wilson went there, we found a beautiful lake, surrounded by the majestic Rocky mountains, with snow-capped peaks and bright green forest on the picturesque slopes. He later recalled: “for Some time we sat silently, unable to look away from the brilliant beauty of the landscape that unfolded in sparkling glacier”.

Near the lake is more than the number of small lakes, waterfalls and trails to them.

Journey to the unique lake Natron

We know that on Earth there are many places with extreme habitat, which sometimes look quite harmless and friendly, but it is hardly possible to say something similar about lake Natron. Should try to describe it in colors, like immediately come to mind only such epithets as alien, bloody and lifeless, that is partly true.

The lake appeared in the midst of the mountain massif of the East African rift, near the border with Kenya and in close proximity to the volcano Ol Doinyo of Lengai. Seismic activity began in this region over 2 million years ago and becoming commonplace for many years, gradually changed the landscape and has refined the earth’s crust, preparing the space for lakes such as Natron, Manyara and Eyasi. Mountain river has eroded the volcanic rocks and formed in the lowlands reservoirs, each of which acquired certain characteristics and, perhaps, the most bizarre brainchild turned out it was the Natron.

With special bacteria which gives the lake a red tint, the pond becomes like a creation of science fiction writers, just like the ocean is sentient protoplasm from the book “Solaris”. Moreover, the lake temperature reaches 50-60 degrees Celsius and the alkaline level is off the charts – it makes the pond is totally unsuitable for most Continue reading
