A million pictures wouldn't do this place justice. The waters are so exquisitely blue-green that your brain almost can't process the color...it's too beautiful to be real! There are 16 interconnected lakes renowned for their distinctive colours, ranging from azure to green, grey or blue. The colours change constantly depending on the quantity of minerals or organisms in the water and the angle of sunlight. I feel like the camera didn't even come close to capturing the true intensity of the colors.
|The day started off very foggy. I wondered if I was actually going to be able to see anything.|
|The trail leading into the park.|
|There are multiple different trails you can follow depending on how far you want to walk.|
|I was pretty sure this was one of the views that comes up when you search for images online but all I got was a hint of it first thing in the morning.|
|The waters are so clear!|
|Finally getting to see some of the amazing colors!|
|And then the incredible reflections!|
|Miles and miles and miles of well-maintained (if not a bit slippery in the damp weather) trails throughout the park let you get right up close to, above and below the lakes and waterfalls.|
|Every time you think the view can't get more stunning, it does.|
|Back where I started but most of the fog had lifted and I could see!|
Have you ever been somewhere that was so beautiful you couldn't capture it in pictures?
