My bucket list include any thing I could think of from exotic locations to sports. While browsing in Pintrest for fun, I saw an amazing photo of a lake that took my breath a way. Without any hesitation the lake was added to my bucket list along with Greece and Slar de Uyuni in Bolivia. Unfortunately, whomever uploaded the pictures, wrote nothing on it but that was not much of a problem. Since the lake was very peculiar and special, googling it was very easy. Actually as soon as I typed pink lake, I had its name and its wiki page. The lake is called Lake Hillier. It is located in western Australia. The color of the lake distinguish it from any other lake. The lake color is pink. Yes, PINK.
After reading more about the lake I found out that the lake is five times salter than the ocean and the color is permanent which mean it does not change if the water is put in a bottle. Scientists cannot figure out why Lake Hillier is pink, speculating that it’s caused by a reaction of sea salt and sodium bicarbonate or caused by red halophilic bacteria in the salt crusts. The good news is the lake has no effects on humans if they swim in it however, I was not able to find pictures of people swimming in it, weird!
Anyhow, whats in your bucket list?
