I love having the window seat on a flight!  What you are seeing here is Lake Grassmere Salt Flats.  Located just down the coast from Blenheim in New Zealand, these ponds produce 60-70,000 tonnes of salt per year!  Initially founded to supply salt based chemicals during the Second World War, it now supplies premium salt products for pharmaceutical, agricultural, food and industrial companies.  Seawater is pumped into the main lake (688 hectares!) Evaporation takes place and the salinity increases throughout Summer.  The water is then transferred through a series of concentration ponds to allow further evaporation to take place (you can see the sectioned ponds along the shore looking from right to left). When the brine reaches saturation point, its transferred into crystallisation ponds where salt forms as a crust on the bottom (you can see these ponds on the left of the main pond - divided into squares). Did you know that these ponds change colour through the Summer months to a gorgeous pink/purple colour?  This is due to microscopic green algae that changes to pink in high salt concentration!  This is the same phenomena that gives the Red Sea its name!! There are also tiny pink shrimp in the water that love the salty environment!

Ready for summer adventures! List of things to do is getting pretty long. #exploring #utahisrad #saltflats #overland #summertime #beach
Salar de Uyuni can be so nice during rain season, if there is no wind. Then the water will act like a mirror. Unfortunatly there was a little breeze so, but got some really nice shots! ° • ° #travel #traveling #vacation #visiting #instatravel #instago #instagood #trip #holiday #photooftheday #fun #travelling #tourism #tourist #instapassport #instatraveling #mytravelgram #travelgram #travelingram #igtravel #passportready #arountheworld #dutchie #followers #uyuni #salardeuyunibolivia  #bolivia #saltflats

Sunset over the salt flats. There are pelicans and flamingos in them thar waters! On our other side is the Gulf of Mexico. It's wonderful to be by the sea once more. The sun seemed to hang in the sky as it set, a giant golden orb clinging to the horizon, as if it simply wasn't ready to say goodnight.  #sunset #saltflats #mexico #lascoloradas
Brooo this salt flats seem beautiful as hell who’s trying to go see one? #saltflats
Where the sky never ends...⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ So in case you're wondering,  this is the famed Salar de Uyuni aka the largest salt flats in the world.  It is a summer now and also the rainy season where the ground is covered by a few inches of water,  causing these amazing reflections. ⁣⁣ ⁣ Personally I think this should be a wonder of the world but most of us know that "official list" is bullshit right? ⁣ ⁣⁣ Hopefully you are enjoying the Bolivia stories!  My South America trip has been punctuated by days of no cell service or wifi so I try to catch you up on my shenanigans when I can. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Any guesses how big Salar de Uyuni is? No cheating! ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #salardeuyuni #travelstoke #uyuni #saltflats #bolivia #visitbolivia #boliviatravel #naturetravel #worldsbestplaces #travelmore #worldwonders #passionpassport #lifewelltravelled #amazingplaces #femaletravelbloggers #lpguide #cntraveler #forbestravelguide #cnntravel

Momento nostalgia... Uma lembrança daquele que sem sombra de dúvidas foi o nascer do sol mais incrível que já vi!! Amanhecer no salário de Uyuni é sem igual!! #sunrise #bolivia #southamerica #uyuni #saltflats

Oh hiiiii.  Just me standing at the lowest elevation (282ft below sea level) in N. America in the #badwaterbasin #saltflats of #deathvalley. Rain falling on surrounding mountains carries minerals to the enclosed basin below where water can’t drain to the sea and where the arid climate means evaporation exceeds precipitation, leaving behind an intense concentration of dry, encrusted salt and other minerals in stunning hexagonal, honeycomb shapes.  #saltoftheearth #endorheicbasin #hypersalinity #evaporiticsalts #saltcrystals #sodiumchloride #calcite #gypsum #borax #closedhydrologicsystem #platetectonics #pleistocene #pluviallakes #lakemanly #desertecology #geology

It was a cold morning in Utah at the salt flats. 32 degrees and windy. The only thing that kept the water from freezing was the salt. We ran in and out of a heated car to make this moment happen. My favorite photos are always the ones I’ve suffered just a little bit to make. Love taking pictures of couples who want to push the limits.
One of the hottest places on earth.  Walked on salt flat and it was hot.  @deathvalleynps @natgeo @natgeotravel
Day six of our road trip was full of goodbyes as we started our journey back to the West Coast. We took a more southern route, thinking we'd miss the crazy snow storm hitting most of the western half of the US. Through Utah it was gorgeous! We stopped at the famed Salt Flats, given that my love is a huge motor head. It was incredible standing on such gorgeous hallowed ground. . . . #adventuredogsofficial #adventuremutts #allaboutadventures #bestwoof #dogsofinsta #dogsoninstagram #excellent_dogs #fluffydog #goldenlife #goldenretriever #travelphotography #travelgram #incredibleearth #instaretrievers #lifeoffleash #moodygrams #adventurepup #onlyinoregon #oregonsdogs #ourpnw #carculture  #pestagram #saltflats #rescueismyfavoritebreed #stayandwander #pnw #traildogs#wanderlost #weekendvibes #sweetbear

All the world's a stage and the Japanese are the best players. - I sat there as each group created their own world and told the story that they wanted to tell. Poses were made, cameramen were told to get lower, the angle was just not right. Umbrellas spun in the bright light. Scarves unfurled and floated in the wind. Poems dancing on the playa. - . . . .  #utah #igutah #bonneville #igdaily #picoftheday #travel #roadtrip #travel #roundtheworld #roamtheplanet #passionpassport #instagood #visualsoflife #vsco #ourplanetdaily #traveltheworld #wanderlust #japan #saltflats #playa #japanesegirl #tourist #tourism #storytelling #dancing

••Currently cuddles up in my bed with a cozy blanket around my shoulders, listening to the birds chirp outside in the sunshine while I edit on my computer until it dies. Then I’ll be searching for a cafe to work at for the rest of the day. Oh the glamour life of self employed life 😂 - - Today and part of tomorrow will be work days. Fingers crossed 🤞🏼 I’ll actually be productive and then I’m making my way down south to Los Angeles, I’m visiting a few people there and doing something special for me. - - Any guesses what I’ll be doing? Hint: It involves flowers and I can’t let it be in sunlight after 😝 Lemme hear you guesses In the comments below! 👇🏼👇🏼
Happy Sunday funday, friends!  In my experience as an expressive, forward, opinionated, brutal, yet intensely loving human/woman, I can honestly say people fear authenticity and realism. They absolutely fear themselves: their inner demons, dark thoughts, pain and heartbreak. They avoid deep emotions/conflict/confrontations at all costs. They will silence/unfriend/block you for being too real.  If you're like me, please never let this fear from others affect the way you move about socially. Love hard, tell the truth, and express who you are, DO YOU at all costs! You will be treated differently, but that's what you're after, because YOU ARE different and that's the beauty of choice. Always choose YOU, and remember, pain is an indicator something has to change. Things will get harder before they ease up, but continue to make the changes necessary to create the life you desire. Stand up and own your story!  Much peace and love to you and yours. ~ERRVoluntaryist ✌❤Ⓐ #happystrails #errvoluntaryist #breathesanarchy #jimmorrison #quote #fear #pain #lovehurts #reality #truth #chooseyou #emotions #growth #strength #resist #freedom #loyalty #honesty #fucksociety #photography #canon #bonneville #saltflats #utah #juggalo #juggalofamily #voluntaryism #bridgingthegap #peace #love
