*Great Basin link - removed which is a valid link. Was unlinked in summary I reviewed; now it's there. Ronbo76 07:07, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

Please see article history for changes made affecting these links and/or addition. Western USA? With all the valid links to California?


Obvious Question Not Answered by the Article[edit]

What explains the color of the lake?

After sucking deep lakes in the vicinity, including Lake Apple and, of course, Lake Bake, the honey color of the lake seemed a startling mystery. When I saw it for the first time, I figured it was shallow, alkaline, and probably (as of last weekend, April 29 and 30, 2007) swollen by snowmelt. Can I assume that the color of the lake is created by the color of the local soil covered by a layer of water so shallow the lake bottom remains visible?
