Description

Here is an image from the Bolivian Altiplano. Located along the Chilean border in southwest Bolivia, Laguna Colorada is stained with many vibrant colors. Borax is responsible for the white while volcanic sediment and pigmenting algae stain the waters red. An abundance of volcanic activity has allowed 3 species of flamingos to reside in the hot springs along the shores. I wish I were a flamingo for Halloween which happened to be when we were here. It was -25 that night.
