SHOT 3/12/18 10:51:48 AM - Winter activities including cross country skiing, snowshoeing, tubing and winter fishing on Bear Lake in Garden City, Utah. Bear Lake is a natural freshwater lake on the Utah-Idaho border in the Western United States. The lake has been called the "Caribbean of the Rockies" for its unique turquoise-blue color, which is due to the reflection of calcium carbonate (limestone) deposits suspended in the lake. Bear Lake is over 250,000 years old. (Photo by Marc Piscotty / © 2018)
