You Can Practically Walk On Water At This Texas Lake That Sits On 4 Million Tons Of Salt

The Lone Star State is home to one of the only salt lakes in America, and hardly anyone knows it exists. La Sal del Rey, located just off TX-186 in Edinburg, is one of the most unique natural wonders in Texas, sitting on a whopping four million tons of salt. You can practically walk on water!

Accessing the lake requires an approximately 3-mile walk, and the parking area can be found on Brushline Road. Admission to the wildlife refuge is always free. Visit the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service website for more information about the Lower Rio Grande Valley National Wildlife Refuge.
