Some are very distinctively heart shaped, while others you have to work a little to see the shape.

2 Lower Chicago Lake, USA

Lower Chicago Lake, USAI was interested to learn that the Chicago Lakes are actually in Colorado. It gets even more confusing because the closest town is Idaho Springs, in the Mount Evans Wilderness – so that’s Chicago, Colorado and Idaho all in one location. Anyway, enough of that. The heart shaped lake is the smaller of the Chicago Lakes and is at a lower elevation than Upper Chicago Lake so you can stand at Upper and view the heart shape of Lower.
