Las Salinas

Las Salinas de Bebedero (wiki) are about half and hour from San Luis, along Ruta 7 to Mendoza. As many of our friends posted on Facebook and Instagram of their winter vacations in Tahoe, Colorado or Wyoming, I was able to post pictures of big white mountains of salt.

This is where the Dos Anclos salt company brings together piles and piles of snow harvested from the nearby salt lake.

Some fools thought it was a great idea to drive their cars through the salt and salt ponds to the lake. Good luck with your car carriage, body and paint! Best to park your car outside the area and walk there.

Watching mountains of salt, amid a desert, is something wonderfully weird.
