Spotted Lake: Osoyoos, BC, Canada

4 years ago

I went on a family trip this weekend, and along the way, we noticed this very unique and exotic looking lake. At first, none of us knew what it was. It didn`t quite look like a lake since there was barely any water, maybe a little bit in a few of these spots. Then, we got off the car and read about some information on this natural phenomenon.

Basically, spotted lake contains various highly concentrated minerals. In the summer, water in the lake evaporates, revealing spotted deposits of these mineral remains. Natives in the area sees this lake as sacred and has a history of using the water in this lake as therapeutic water. They believe that soaking your feet in this water can cure diseases.

This lake was actually right beside the highway that we were driving through. Everyone who passes by can easily spot it. I think that without having the information about the lake near the area, most people would not even begin to guess what this whole thing is and what caused it to form. I was able to spot a lot of animal foot prints on the "lake". Too bad I didn`t see any animals walking by. I was truly awed by the unique beauty of this lake.
