 Beautiful Lake with very unusual colored sand - by Robert Swetz

 This has to be some of the strangest colored sand I have ever seen, I did not change the color on this beautiful pic shot just out of Hurricane Utah.

 The water in the lake is spring water from the mountains and it is crystal clear with trout and other fish swimming around.

 If you wade around the shore line the sand around the whole lake is this color, only a little darker when it's wet.

Robert, the sand looks like the surface of Mars. Very cool.

Yeah...that's a strange color.  I had never seen red clay until I moved to Georgia.

Very unusual color I can honestly say I've never seen anything like this.  Very exotic looking like its a far off land.

Reminds me of the red clay I see when going through Oklahoma. I remember the different colors of sand seen in Hawaii at the beaches. Who would have ever thought black sand?

It does look like the color of red clay in Georgia.  Only our clay is not sandy at all.  It's hard or it's muddy. 

Beautiful picture as always Robert.

Morning Robert,

Great picture, as always. I remember my first trip to Mississippi, the earth was close to the sand color in your picture.

Deborah - Yes it is, if you look real close at parts of the mountains in the back ground you can see this reddish color.
