ah! a bloody pond!

well, here's my take on it. while it may well be supernatural in nature, it's important to remember what happens to hot wells and springs in yellowstone national park. even in geyser basins where the ground is covered uniformly with water for several contiguous acres, different colors of algae blooms appear in adjoining depressions and "pools" according to different minerall nutrients present and the actual temperature of the pool itself.

also, clay deposits are rarely uniform - in some areas of the united states red clay and dirt are common for miles and miles (like parts of northwestern and central oklahoma) but in other areas, red clay containing iron oxide (the red pigment) can be found in veins and pockets. for instance, my parent's property in northeast oklahoma has large veins of clay deposit, but only streaks or pockets will be red clay rich in iron oxide; most of the surrounding clay will be gray or white clay. i've been on many a clay dig, so this is not uncommon.

more than likely, there is some geographic correlation between iron oxide rich soil and a corresponding algae or micro-organism bloom that depends on the specific types of plan life decomposition and minerals present in the localized soil. it's probably a very rich coincidence that these natural effects are revealed around the site of the tragic accident...

... although i always see these kind of more scientific "coincidences" as tied to the supernatural in some way, as nature itself is a large and complex machine that makes endless connections that defy both known science and logic!

well, not busting it really, but it seems to be a more likely explaination when soil composition and resulting microbiotic life are taken into consideration. :weeee:

perhaps it's the algae that's haunted.

THAT IS ODD, MOON! You would think if there was red clay in the soil, it would effect all the ponds.

But maybe it's some kind of microscopic algea that turned the pond red. Have you ever heard of Red Tide? It's when the ocean water turns red in some spots, it is caused by an algae i think.

I have seen, when rockhounding, the areas where certain minerals are can be *amazingly* localized---like if you step just a few feet away you won't find anything, yet there'll be a huge deposit right next to it---you'd think the change from one kind of rock to another would be more gradual, but sometimes it isn't. So I'd think it possible to have just a narrow strip or splotch of red clay in an area with little of it in the immediate surroundings.

Heh, should have read the second page first---but Owl Goddess got it right---and she could be right about natural phenomena being tied to supernatural signs.
