Natural Snaps: Breathtaking natural wonders worth the distance

Ever played the game of Twister on water? The green, yellow, and brown polka dots that form on British Columbia’s Spotted Lake each summer make it look like you could. It’s a far cry from the stereotypical landscapes of clear blue lakes, rolling green hills, and white-sand beaches that inspire most travellers—and that’s part of what makes strange natural wonders like Spotted Lake so thrilling. A recently discovered cave that grows crystals the size of four-storey buildings or a lake the color of a strawberry milkshake remind us that there’s plenty of mystery left to explore. Seeing is believing, so here you go!
