Yes, a 56-acre podka dotted lake exists in the Canadian wilderness

What, is this a gigantic Yayoi Kusama installation? Nope, though it might well be mistaken as one. The Spotted Lake near Osoyoos in British Columbia looks like any other lake most of the time. In summer, however, its water evaporates to reveal beautiful crater-like mineral deposits at the bottom of the lake.

The varying concentrations of magnesium sulfate and calcium/sodium phosphates in the mineral deposits means that each podka dot — measuring an average of 25 ft — comes in a distinct color from yellow, orange, green to blue.
