Island Lake Wind River Range Wyoming is the best I’ve been to.

Iceberg lake in glacier National park is a very close second.

Delta Lake in the Tetons is nice. I hiked there two weeks ago

ETA..very challenging hike. Particularly if you link two other alpine lakes - Amphitheater Lake and Surprise Lake. Can be done in < 8 hours

I enjoyed going up to Eagle Lake from Tahoe.

Does Plitvice count as alpine? Not strenuous but awesome. Still working on my photos from my trip. Have a two year old so I get maybe 2 hours a night to myself.

Pretty much any alpine lake in Switzerland? I'm partial to Interlaken.

Naw this is as far as I've gotten. I have basically the weekends. I only used my camera at Plitvice and a little in Dubrovnik. My phone everywhere else. My wife probably has some photos I need on her phone too so to make a good report I have to organize it all together.

North Cascades NP has a lot of spectacular ones:



Lake Louise up in Banff:



Emerald Lake up in the Yukon might be the most unusual/stunning I've seen in person:

Diablo
The Diablo Dam is stunning. It basically is fed from a canyon.

Ya these lakes have become "my thing" in the last year or so. Want to do a Northern Italy to Slovenia trip to see a bunch.


Do you have a coordinate for the Emerald lake you linked?

I have one saved but it's in BC near Banff. You seem to be referring to another one.

Just the favorite of what I’ve been to, but I liked

Cathedral in Yosemite.


Sky Pond in Rocky Mountain.


Edited to add my own pics.

That's Moraine Lake, but it's also in Banff.

Goose lake in Red River NM is a cool place. Sketchy ride on a SxS to the top.

Coonass gonna try to fish. Even at 11,630'.
