Okay, back to the trip. These montons above are piles of salt, drying in the sun. (Yes, we tasted them. And yes, they were very salty.)
Our landcruiser. The town of Uyuni must have half the world's supply of landcruisers. It's a testament to the size of the salar that even with a small army of landcruisers setting out each morning we spent the whole day in almost total isolation on the salt.
Fun fact: The salar is 25 times the size of the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. Its area is 4068 square miles - for comparison, the land area of Rhode Island is 1045 square miles. (I guess that explains where all the other tourists went.)
View from the island of Incahuasi somewhere in the middle of the salt. It was comparatively crowded, but worth a visit.
The salt flat is obviously really good at reflecting sunlight. So much so that I imagine you could do some permanent damage to your eyesight if you didn't wear sunglasses.
I also imagine that it would be an excellent tanning bed, though I didn't have time to investigate that possibility.
(Once again, I just can't hold a camera straight. Apologies.)
And of course, there were llamas. In fact, we ate one for lunch...
