Salty!

Today I was able to take
a walk into the Great Salt Lake.

You might think with the intense salinity that nothing would be alive in there.  But... no, there's a bunch of living stuff - brine shrimp, brine flies, algae, and birds.  No fish though.  It's too salty for fish to survive.

On the shore, beneath blue skies,
small piles of salt were crystallized.
