How on earth have I lived nearly 30 years before realizing the awesomeness of Australia's perfectly Pepto-Bismol pink Lake Hillier? Look at that thing, nearly half a mile of permanently rose-hued water. Some say the lake's cheery bubble-gum tint is due to a dye secreted by the organisms living in it, while others blame the crusty salt perimeter for the contribution of color.
No matter the explanation, I'm intrigued by the sometimes shocking beauty that we come across on this chunk of rock... even as the world seems to shrink a bit more every day.
