a bit to add about the salt flats
For those of you who have missed the dubious pleasure of hours of staring at the salt flats at 75 mph/120 kph (plus?)…..Apparently the image in my previous post gave a rather false impression of a serene lakeside for a lovely place to enjoy a solitary stroll. The reality was a bit different than imagined. I pulled off to the side of an interstate highway with monster 18-wheeler trucks and cars zooming past me likely going well over 75 mph (the legal speed limit).
Check this link out for some marvelous images of a Bolivian Salt Flat with a similar thin film of water collected on top of a vast plain of salt deposits. It was a sight I couldn’t resist shooting despite warning signs to pull off the interstate highway only in case of emergency…..
If you’re interested in learning a bit more… THIS will take you to some information about Utah’s Salt Flats.
