Incahuasi Island, Uyuni Salt flat, Bolivia

The island lies pretty much in the middle of the salt flat and is a hill of lava rock and cacti that look pretty much like saguaro that one sees in Arizona.  It's quite amazing to see all this growth in the middle of such a "desert".

 Of course, lunch was an important part of the day and our picnic was set up on these tables whose tops were made of slabs of salt. 
 It was hard for us three Canadians to look out at this view and to remember that it was salt we were looking at, not ice!
