Why is the Smith River so BLUE?

It is blue, the bluest of blue that water could be. Every picture I take is breathtakingly blue. So I am asking, what makes the Smith River so blue? I did some searching, and got two different answers, (1) mineral content, (2) sunlight reflecting off the rocky bottom through crystal clear water. I really don't know which is correct. Here are some pictures of the Smith River, taken in different locations.
