Lake No Lake is a lake in British Columbia (Canada), dammed by the Tulsequah Glacier in the background (estimated height 150-200 m), which empties several times a year. In the 1990s, this lake, when full, held a volume of over 700 million cubic meters of meltwater. This photograph shows the lake almost completely emptied on 9/16/2022 with icebergs left on the lake bottom.
