This bottle is named after a glacially fed lake in Banff National Park, Alberta Canada. Lake Moraine is best known for its distinct shade of turquoise. Its color is caused by the refraction of light off the fine grain particles of rock ground by glacial erosion, called rock flour. The lake was featured on the 1969 and 1979 issue of the Canadian twenty dollar bill. This is why the view of the mountains behind the lake is known as "The twenty dollar view"
Peyto Lake is another glacially fed lake in Banff National Park. It was named for Bill Peyto, a pioneer, mountain guide, and early park warden. Notably, he was chosen as a guide to lead Edward Whymper, a mountaineer best known for the first ascent of the Matterhorn in 1865, to Vermillion Pass.
The second largest body of saltwater to consider itself a "bay" in the world, located in Northeastern Canada. The Hudson Bay is largely covered by ice for most of the year and its runoff waters feed into many rivers and streams through Canada.
Historically, the search for a new trade route with East Asia and the Indies during the 17th century led to the discovery of the Hudson Bay or Hudson's bay, by Henry Hudson. Many trade routes and posts around the area were set up to trade beaver pelts with indigenous peoples during the trapping season. This massive body of water has played a significant role in Canada's western settlement and early economic development.
Located in British Columbia and reaching an elevation of 3,954 m (12,972 ft), Mount Robson is recognized as the highest point along the Canadian Rockies.
Reverend George Kinney, a founding member of the Alpine club, claimed to be the first to the summit of Mount Robson in 1909. However, the Alpine club elite members reviewed his claim to be implausible and unlikely. The summit was officially reached by a large party of Alpine club members in 1913. And while Reverend George Kinney may not be credited as its first climber, Kinney Lake was named for this famous early ascensionist.
