Titel: Foam and bsalt pillars on the Soap Lake shore

On the WA 17 north of Ephrata in Washington State, USA.


Soap Lake is a meromictic lake in the town of Soap Lake, Washington formed by the Missoula Floods at the foot of the Grand Coulee. The lake gets its name from the naturally occurring foam that gives its water a soapy appearance and because the lake's mineral-rich waters have a slick, soapy feel. The lake is approximately 2mi.² (5.12km²) in area and 70ft (21.2m) deep.
