A little miracle of nature

Good evening dear virtual friends, how are you tonight?

I will take this opportunity to apologize to everyone for not visiting you for the last two days, due to obligations I was not able to send everything, but I will compensate you all. I hope this colorful weather does not affect your mood. We have a little sun, a little rain, and then it's just cloudy, and everything in a circle, that's why I called it "colorful" weather. Well, speaking of colorful, have you heard of a lake whose bottom is covered with colorful pebbles? :)

From bright red to light brown, from blue to pale green, the colorful rocks of Lake McDonald's delight both visitors to the lake and those who see it in photographs. Lake McDonald is one of 700 lakes in Glacier National Park in the US state of Montana.

Due to the low temperatures that prevent the growth of plankton, the water of the lake is incredibly clear and transparent, even in places where the depth is an incredible 9 meters. Imagine that you have the opportunity to look at the lake from a bird's eye view, and the clear one and see the bottom which is 9 meters deep :) Covered with clear water, the real stars of this lake are its rainbow-colored stones.

MacDonald is not the only lake rich in this colorful gravel, but it is certainly one of the most famous. It has been around for centuries. The stones are formed of red and green rocks, they are rich in iron, and the colors are the result of not exposing the stones to heat and air.

For example, a strong red color means that the rock was in shallow water and that it was often exposed to air due to the withdrawal and influx of water. The dark green color tells us that it is a rock, although it contains an equal amount of iron, formed in deep water, and was not exposed to oxygen.

For thousands of years, water has broken these rocks into smaller pieces, and river erosion has turned them into the smooth gravel we admire today.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post. I wish you a pleasant rest of the evening. Greetings to all of you @Jigglyspy

There are so many things that have not yet been learned that it is truly amazing. Nature itself is beautiful and strange

It turns out that the cause of the color is not coming into contact with air and heat. Very interesting. Thanks for the comment

This is so magical! I would take some of these stones, but it's better just take pictures of them and make some presentation of that place.. Thank you for sharing knowledge about this place! It's wonderful...

I would be really sorry to take anything. If each of us took a pebble, it wouldn't be that anymore. So, as you say, it is better to Just watch and admire :-) Thanks for the nice comment. Greeting
