7 (Pink!) Wonders Of the World That Will Blow Your Mind
Beyond flowers and the occasional flamingo, pink is a color we didn't associate with nature until we spotted a photo of a preposterously cute pink lake in Australia. We've tracked down 7 beautiful examples of the color pink in nature that any lover of pink will add to their travel bucket lists.
1. Lake Hillier in Western Australia may look like it's full of Pepto-Bismol, but the coloration is entirely natural. The cause of the lake's pink color is unknown, but it's suspected that bacteria in the lake dye it this shade. Still, pretty!
2. The desert sand in Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park in Utah gets its pink hue from surrounding Navajo Sandstones.
3. Pink sand beaches, like Pink Sand Beach on Harbour Island in the Bahamas, get their signature color from a combination of calcium carbonate, corals and shells.
4. Angels Landing in Utah's Zion National Park is a popular hiking trail because of its massive size and strenuous difficulty as well as the sandstone's gorgeous pink tone
5. Petra is an ancient city in Jordan, famous for its architecture, which was cut out of the sandstone cliffs thousands of years ago. Many areas of Petra are a beautiful pink
6. Endangered coral reefs around the world come in a host of colors. These pink soft corals off the coast of Fiji are particularly stunning
7. The Alabaster Caverns State Park in Freedom, Oklahoma includes a number of lovely selenite crystal formations, including these pink ones
