California's Pink Salt Lakes
Last summer many of you asked what caused the red coloration on the salt flats of the dry Owens Lake. Clicking the link above will take you to an informative article which will answer your questions and provide a lot more information besides.

The short answer is halophilic (salt loving) bacteria, not algae, which causes the red tide in the Red Sea. I guessed algae in answer to many of you last summer. That was not correct. The red and pink in the salt flats here are from bacteria which thrive in waters of high salt concentration. This is explained in detail in the article linked to above.
