What was awesome about Carla and Chris' engagement is that not only did we have such a stunning backdrop and a gorgeous couple to photograph, they also want wanted to incorporate smoke bombs! We have been dying to smoke bombs in our photo shoot, so when Carla suggested it, we could pass the chance.
Despite its name, the lake is itself not pink at all, but rather green. It is named after the Pink family who had a farm close by back in the 1800s. Pink Lake is particularly unique because of its meromictic nature - meaning its upper and lower layers of water never mix! A hike around the lake, on its well-maintained stairs and pathways, can take sixty to ninety minutes depending on your fitness level or how many stops you make on its various lookouts. Regardless of where you are on the trail, you will always have foliage and trees on one side and its beautiful turquoise-colored water on the other. I have been there once in the fall, and the lake reflects the vibrant colors of the changing leaves which make for a gorgeous mirrored effect!
