Cordillera de la Sal | Valle de la Luna

WI_ch342.jpg

Sunset view from the largest dune in the Valle de la Luna. The Cordillera de la Sal consists of a sequence of clastic and evaporitic sedimentary layers, which evolved in and around an ancient salt flat, and of pyroclastic deposits. The entire package has been tilted and folded due to tectonic compression.
