#11. The pink Lake Hiller lake in Western Australia
Lake Hillier is a pink-colored lake on Middle Island, the largest of the islands and islets that make up the Recherche Archipelago, Western Australia. From above the lake appears a solid bubble gum pink. It is such a significant distinguishing feature of the archipelago that air passengers often crane their necks to take a glimpse of it.
The lake is about 600 meters long, and is surrounded by a rim of sand and a dense woodland of paperbark and eucalyptus trees. A narrow strip of sand dunes covered by vegetation separates it to the north from the Southern Ocean.
The unusually solid pink color is said to be due to the presence of algae, which is commonly associated with discoloration processes.
#10. The elephant rock formation in Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada
Elephant Rock, a sandstone formation that looks like an elephant and whose trunk is formed by a natural arch, is a fine example of an arch in the shape of an elephant.
Elephant Rock is one of the most photographed natural formations in Nevada’s oldest and largest state park, The Valley of Fire.
This sandstone formation perfectly resembles an elephant. Its long, straight snout extends all the way to the ground from a rounded head and slender neck. Its haunches are clearly defined, too. And from some angles it even appears to have shoulder blades, knees, and perhaps ears, if the shadows are just right. Strange!
#9. Balls Pyramid, Australia
The Ball’s Pyramid is a unique land structure found in the The South Pacific, near the Australian east coast. It resembles a castle that has come out of the depths of the ocean in all its glory and magnificence.
What is more interesting is that this structure is actually a remnant of an ancient volcano that emerged from the ocean about 8 million years ago.
The tallest sea stack in the world can be found in Lord Howe island in New South Wales, Australia. This measures approximately 562 feet. The Ball’s Pyramid is the home of the world’s rarest insect.
