SALAR DE UYUNI, BOLIVIA - Dry waterway branches stretch toward blue water across the massive Salar de Uyuni salt lake in southwestern Bolivia. C6_321_072 Dry riverbed formations leading to a thin strip of blue water in the huge Salar de Uyuni salt flats in southwestern Bolivia near the city of Potosi; the Salar de Uyuni is believed to be the largest salt lake in the world and is quite disorienting (reminiscent of the Denakil Depression in its eerie, unearthly patterns).
