Some of you might remember that this is the lake where NASA Scientists discovered a new species of microorganism that thrives and reproduces on the toxic chemical Arsenic. For Scientist looking for life in extreme environments, this means a whole new definition of life, as in "Life as we Don't Know it". This was my chance to visit the desert side of California's Sierra Nevada Mountains and experience this visually striking lake and get to know more about its inhabitants.
A friend of mine from the NASA/SETI High Lakes Expedition served as photographer during this project. Heres one of his photos of the lake;
