Interesting Weird Places on Earth
If you like to explore the weird places, then here are some uncanny destinations to add to your travel list:
1. Spotted Lake
The native Okanagan (Syilx) population believes that this saline endorheic alkali lake is sacred. It is located in British Columbia in the northwest of Osoyoos. During the summer season, the most water of this lake evaporates leaving small mineral pools.
Depending on the mineral content, each pool appears in a different color as compared to the next. These pools are mainly composed of magnesium sulfate which in the summer crystallizes in the lake and form natural ‘walkways’ between and around the pools.
2. Thor’s Well
Also, famous as Spouting Horn. It is a unique and weird site that looks spectacular at high tide or during rough storms. The water violently washes over the huge rocks into the ‘gaping holes’.
Then, with great force, the water shoots upwards creating spectacular views. However, it is a risk-prone weird place to visit. The whirlpool can sweep you right into it. So, for your own safety, stay well back.
