GigaPan w/Canon SD850
Located in the Atacama Desert (n. Chile), this salar ("salt flat", essentially) produces enough mined salt to account for the domestic consumption of Chile plus a few million tons for export.
The lower parts of the salar are essentially pure NaCl (rare, geologically speaking - usually there's a lot of other salts mixed in)... the top forms this rough, bumpy texture and is covered with millions of years of dust.
This is a 360 view (at least - had to take out 2 columns of photos that overlapped) from a few hundred feet into the salar itself. No need to walk further - this is what it all looks like....
