Salar de Uyuni Sunrise

The Salar de Uyuni is the largest salt flat in the world, and one of the highest. It covers over 10,500 square kilometers (almost 4100 square miles), and is 11,995 feet above sea level.

The Salar is made up of a thick layer of salt, varying from several centimeters up to 10 meters. Underneath there is a pool brine. I suspect that the ridges form as the brine seeps up through the cracks and then evaporates at the surface.
