Contest #90 Answer: Spotted Lake, Osoyoos, British Columbia, Canada

Just off Canadian Hwy 3 (Crowsnest Hwy) northwest of Osoyoos, British Columbia is the most unusual spotted lake, really more of a 38 acre pond.  The spots are created by the strong mineral deposits and evaporation during the summer months, leaving small pools of unusual shapes and colors.  The lake is also known as a sacred lake, Kliluk, to the native Indian population.  More about the lake can be found here.

Thanks to Ewen for submitting the series 81-90, His final submission was a tough challenge, that stumped even myself, I was convinced that this was in Yellowstone somewhere.   Good to hear from you Karel – hope all is well.
