What's in the water? on 07/25/2013 13:17:14 MDT Print View

Greetings. I just returned from a hike to Blodgett Lake in the Selway-Bitterroot Wilderness, near the Montana/Idaho border. When I filled a bag of water from Blodgett Lake (to run through my Sawyer Squeee filter), I noticed a handful of little red swimming creatures -- like little flat see horses or shrimp or something. I'm wondering if any of you know what these could possibly be. They were about 1/16" tall and half as wide, and razor thin. Just curious! Thanks.
