Long Description:
This is the lowest place on the continent! You can get as much salt as you want. You can even get on the ground and lick it, like my son did, but I don't recommend it. During the spring time, this place is flooded. During the winter and summer, it is all salt. You can walk out for however long you want to, but remember to bring lots of water.
Kind: Salt Evaporation Pond

Is the place still active?: yes
