You must see this miracle of nature with your own eyes
Climbers, conquering the mountains of California and the Himalayas, annually face a stunning natural phenomenon - pink snow. The locals called it “watermelon”, because by its smell it vaguely resembles this fragrant berry.
Watermelon snow is a waste product of the so-called "snow" algae. When the snow melts in the sun, algae creates an ideal habitat. They literally bloom and turn into a pink substance, coloring the snow around.
Pink snow, also known as snow algae, red snow, watermelon snow and even ominous bloody snow has been seen in various parts of the world, including the mountains of California, the Himalayas, the rocky mountains, the Arctic and Antarctica.
It is worth at least once to see this miracle of nature with your own eyes.
