Travel Spotlight: Lake Hillier

originalCan you believe this exists? Located in Australia, Lake Hillier is a bubble-gum-pink lake. you’re probably just wondering whether or not you can swim in Lake Hillier. Well, good news: as any Aussie will attest, it’s really just a salt lake; really salty, but perfectly safe to swim in. Scientists have not been able to prove why Lake Hillier is pink, speculating that it’s caused by a reaction of sea salt and sodium bicarbonate (which you know as baking soda), or caused by red halophilic bacteria in the salt crusts. But, it is equally likely that there is a giant underwater strawberry farm.

Would you add this to your bucket list?
