Five Colorful Places to Add to Your Bucket List

Nature creates the most beautiful things on earth, in our opinion. There are rain forests of green, deserts of tan, and icebergs of white, all touting some picturesque landscapes. You know we love the weird around here, so we've added five new items to our weird bucket list of colorful destinations to visit, because photo ops are our favorites. Be prepared to be amazed with Mother Nature below...

LAKE HILLIER, AUSTRALIA

Your eyes to not deceive you, that lake is PINK. To make it even more interesting, nobody truly knows why. Most scientist speculate its from a bacteria in the salt crusts that creates a sort of dye, but it's officially a mystery. Lake Hillier is located in Western Australia. This isn't the only pink lake, but it's on my bucket list for sure. Plus, it's right next to a beautiful beach, so you get a two-for-one deal in that sense. I like deals.

Antelope Canyon, Arizona

Antelope Canyon is located in Arizona and makes for some amazingly cool photos. Its smoothed rock was created by water corrosion and it still floods at times. Due to sunshine coupled with shadows, you can see some strange color changes in the normally orange rocks. Adjusting white balance on your camera is a good tip to bring out the colors in photographs. 

Grand Prismatic Spring, Wyoming

This is a hot spring in Yellowstone National Park. It gets its crazy colors from bacteria and photosynthesis and other science-y things. They couldn't have named it a more appropriate name, it really does have the colors of a prism. It's nearly rainbow status. This takes the award for most outrageous of the colorful places. It really looks like a science experiment It's crazy how nature can provide the most beautiful colors. You can't get in it though, the water is 160 degrees!

Capillas de Marmol, Chile

This cave is located in the Lago General Carrera in Chile, which has insane turquoise coloring due to water runoff from nearby glaciers. The cave was caused by water erosion, which is how it gets its smooth wavy texture. The turquoise water + water eroded cave = ice blue heaven without the ice. (Does this remind anyone else of Elsa's dress? We think of Disney way too often.)

Tulip Fields, The Netherlands

The Netherlands are known for their tulips. It's almost their pride and joy, and rightfully so! This is the only item on the list that is kind of man-made. Or half man-made. The amazingly colorful tulips are natural, of course, but the way they're planted in mass amounts in rows makes it all the more alluring to visit. 

Photo-ops galore here! Do you know of any interesting places to add to our bucket list? Follow Magen on Pinterest for more crazy cool destinations.
