Agate Lake  

The peculiar sight in Agate Lake is agate stones, which are glittering and crimson, translucent and lovely, scattering at the bottom and around the lake, like a carpet made out of diamonds. When they reflect the unique sunshine and blue sky in the desert, it makes tourists feel like being a colorful fairyland. Besides, it takes one’s breath away, when the light of sunset is dyed into crimson by the agate stones and reflected into sky. If it happens that white clouds pass by, the light, which is reflected by the agate stones, will turn colorful and fire your imaginations.
