May 2016 – The Jasper Park Lodge sites along side the shores of Lake Beauvert. As the name suggests it is a wonderful shade of green and on a sunny day reflects the adjacent mountain range.
The natural glacier-fed lake was formed during the last glaciation about 12,000 years ago. Lake Beauvert is a lake formed as a glacial kettle lake. Kettles are bowl shaped holes in the earth created by large blocks of ice that fell from glaciers. When the blocks of ice melted they left “kettle shaped holes.” Kettles were also formed by the gouging action of the glacier as they moved across an area.
