Bolivia – July 9th, 2012

Several Bolivian lakes can be observed in this image of South America. In the lower left quadrant is the large Lake Titicaca, straddling the Bolivia-Peru border. To the northeast, near the right edge, is a cluster of lakes in Bolivia’s Beni Departament, including Lake Rogaguado (tan from sediments) and Lake Huaytunas (also known as Lake Ginebra, green from sediments and algal growth). A plume of smoke from a wildfire can be observed to the northwest of the lakes.
