There are so many different lakes of so many different colors, I find it hard to pick my favorites. This author choses these eight lakes of different colors.
She didn't pick my very favorite lakes, so far, Croatia's Plitvice Lakes National Park. Pillaged during the Balkan War in the early 1990's, Plitvice survived because of a type of limestone called travertine, which grows quickly and continuously, creating pools and barriers, water slides, and cascades. With 16 falling lakes arranged in terraces, they connect with countless waterfalls and rapids.
