In this set, I continue the presentation of the Five-Color-Pond which I commenced yesterday, then follow with a few images from our walk through the forest along the shore where, not being a birder at all, I was lucky to capture the image of a bird along the forest path. I end this post with some fall scenes captured on our internal park bus ride to Zechawa Village, where our group stopped for lunch.

I repeat the information I provided yesterday on this lake:
Five-Color Pond (五彩池, Wǔcǎi Chí) is one of the smallest bodies of water in Jiuzhaigou lakes. It has an area of just 5,645 m² / 60,000 sq ft and a depth of 6.6 m / 22 ft and is situated at an altitude of 2,995 m / 9,820 ft. Despite its very modest dimensions and depth, it has a richly colored underwater landscape with some of the brightest and clearest waters in the area. According to legend, this is the pond where the goddess Semo washed her hair and god Dage came daily to bring her water.

Beautifully colored photos of the pond. I also really like the trees in #5 and #6. Quite unusual and striking.
