Photographer's Note

Valle de la Luna (Moon valley) officially qualifies as one of the strangest places I have ever seen. stone and sand have been folded into most bizarre formations, as a result of a sequence of transformations on the Earth's crust caused by the folding of the watery ground underneath the salt lake. I have never been to Moon (lack of time mostly), but I imagine it might look like this.

the valley is also considered one of the driest places on earth, as some areas have not received a single drop of rain in hundreds of years. a prototype for a Mars rover was tested here by scientists because of the valley's dry and forbidding terrain.
