To be clear, I'm talking about lakes at >10k feet elevation in the San Juan mountains.

Sloan Lake in the American Basin is 12,900 ft.

Lake Como below California Pass and Blue Lake (below) are both at 12,200 ft.

Again, I'm not concerned with pathogens and would use a filter. I'm concerned with minerals from the surrounding land.

Is water from these safe to drink or does the color indicate minerals one would not want to ingest.
