    Salt Pinnacles, Death Valley, California

    Here you can see what the Salt Pinnacles at Badwater look like. They are formed when salt in solution rises from the water table. On reaching the surface, the water evaporates and the salt, which is 95% pure, crystallizes. The pinnacles can be as large as 2" high.
