I couldn’t believe how white and flat the ground was. Marusya tasted the salt on the tips of her fingers. She wanted to make sure it was actually salty. It was and it wasn't good. “Yucky.” This wasn’t surprising because it is very powdery and dry.
The Salt Flats stretch on for miles.
Hard crunchy salt! As you start driving, all you see in the horizon and all around you is SALT, it was SURREAL. The only landmark that really helped you out was the faint mountains on one side. Marusya had a blast running around on the salt, and the car’s tires and bottom got a good dose of salt on it (car wash was needed the next day).
