Most of the water in the lake evaporates over the summer, leaving behind large “spots” of minerals. Depending on the mineral composition left behind, the spots will be of white, pale yellow, green or blue in color. Known as Kliluk to the natives of the Okanagan Valley, the lake is a sacred and culturally significant site. The Native Indians used the mud and waters of the lake to heal aches and ailments.
