Thanks for posting some nice pictures.

The salt flats is a strange place.

I was there in 06'. Some very neat machinery is brought there.

My first time on the salt (it was around 7:30AM) I thought "oh it's nice here" not too hot.
By 11am you needed a welding helmet to not burn you eyes and a constant stream of water to cool you.

I could not believe how bright and hot it could get on planet earth!

Words can't explain the feeling of being flat out on the salt
