That looks delicious! Creme Brulee ?

The colours were amazing D! Kind of like pumpkin soup with cream stirred in around the edges, I thought :-)

Seriously though, the salt content was such that walking on that mush was coming into the realms of possiblity...wonder what else is in there!!!

Nothing living by the sounds of the salt content. I went for a dip in an open cut at Lake Nerramyne where they mine Attapulgite (kitty litter. The water was so salty you could just float around. If youo look at Lake Nerramyne on GE, we were in the smallest open cut and that was rather large. The water was deep but clear.

Most of the ground water in the mining areas seems to about 7 - 10 saltier than sea water. Watch Derek for snakes that swim there too.... :-))
Chocolate coloured water is a worry.....

Tolle Aufnahme, aber warum ist es in der Mitte so dunkel? Ist es dort tiefer? L

Hello lizab and thank you for your LIKE! :-)

Hi there kw, in My photo here one can see the Swimming Lake when it is looking much healthier. This was in 2005. I'm not sure if it has been full again since then, but I assume that after much evaporation, this is what is left, and it is extremely salty!!
