Spotted Lake (Khiluk) is a salt alkali lake in British Columbia with high concentrations of magnesium sulfate, calcium and sodium sulfate as well as a number of other minerals and metals.

In a tiny corner of western Poland a forest of about 400 pine trees grow with a 90 degree bend at the base of their trunks - all bent northward. Surrounded by a larger forest of straight growing pine trees this collection of curved trees, or "Crooked Forest," is a mystery.
