Incahuasi Island, Bolivia

Photograph by George Steinmetz, National Geographic

Moonlight bathes Incahuasi Island, an outcropping of cacti and fossilized algae in the Salar de Uyuni salt flat. A great lake covered this area 16,000 years ago. When it dried up, it left a 4,000-square-mile basin of salt, the world's largest such deposit.
