    This town is nestled in the Rocky Mountain foothills. Named for the pinkish burnt rock that can be found in its mountains, Pink Moutain is a treasure trove of marine fossils and home to over 1,000 wild bison.

    If you've ever wanted to see a pink field, Takinoue town is the place to go! These plants called shibazakura cover the hills in cherry-blossom like flowers in all different shades of pink.

    There are several pink lakes in the world, but two of the best known are Lake Retba, Senegal (shown above) which is a salty lake that that is most pink during the dry season and Lake Hillier, Australia, another pink, salty lake on Middle Island, Australia. It is thought that bacteria living in the salt cause the color of both lakes. But don't worry! These lakes are completely safe to swim in, so your dreams of looking like you're swimming in strawberry milk are still alive.

    Pink beaches are super rare. They get their color from tiny oysters named Foraminifera. Loose oyster shells get crushed by the waves and give the sand that gorgeous pink hue.
