GigaPan w/Canon SD850


View of Salar Grande ("big salt flat", basically), from a little ridge lying west of the deposit.

This particular salar is extremely pure (99.9% NaCl), which is rather rare for this type of deposit (they're usually 'contaminated' with other salts as well). Mines in the Salar export several million tons of salt per year as well as satisfying the domestic need for salt.
