Mother Nature has many colors in her palette and her pink natural wonders are glorious – mainly because they are features we don’t normally associate with being pink. For example – pink lakes that look like someone has tipped over a bottle of Pepto-Bismol and rocks that have been painted with a rose brush. You don't need rose-tinted glasses to check out these pink natural wonders – they’re pretty cool!
1. Lake Hillier, Western Australia
Lake Hillier is found on Middle Island, the biggest of the Recherche Archipelago, off the coast near Esperance. From the air, Lake Hillier looks like a huge blob of rosy pink bubble gum (anyone remember Bazooka Joe gum?) in a sea of emerald green forest. Unlike other bodies of unusual colored water, the exact reason for the lake’s vivid pink hue is unknown, but scientists generally agree it is a dye created by bacteria in the salt crusts. Lake Hillier is just one of a number of colored lakes in Western Australia – an area that seems to have more than its fair share of natural pink wonders.
