    Salt and Natural Gas

    by grandmaR Updated Sep 3, 2008

    Favorite thing: under construction

    There is a toll booth to the island - Bob was surprised to have to pay 50 cents toll although I had told him about that. It's called an environmental fee. When we were there, you could take tours of the salt mines, but they no longer give those tours. It is now leased to Cargill.
