Laguna Colorado as Seen from Space

This astronaut photo taken from the ISS of the brightly colored Laguna Colorado in the Bolivian Andes Mountains shows a strong red-brown color, which is derived from algae that thrives in its salty water.  This lake sits 4,300 meters above sea level (14,100 feet), and is roughly 10 kilometers (6 miles) in length.  Ancient shorelines show the lake has been larger in the past.  For more on this image, visit our website at http://goo.gl/V8GnJR
