Salt of the Earth

“At 3,650 meters above sea level, in the Bolivian Altiplano, there exists the largest continual salt desert on our planet, with a surface extending 4,085 square miles,” writes Dany Krom, a member of our Your Shot community. “In it, men work to extract salt, lithium, and borax while having to adapt to the climate adversities and life conditions.”
