Searles Lake, California, USA/Best of

Masses of red, salt-loving algae live in the swamps on the banks of Lake Searles, a salt lake in the Mojave Desert. The lake is named after John Searles who ran the first salt mine there in 1873. Even today borax is still mined on the shores of this salt lake. (aerial view)
