Location: Badwater Basin. Located slightly higher than the water table in the basin, the salt formations remain dry and are therefore exposed to weathering, resulting in the rugged surface observed in this image. The salt-tolerant shrub in the foreground is a iodine bush (Allenrolfea occidentalis).
