Rare Salt Formations At The Great Salt Lake Were Recently Discovered In Utah
Park rangers at the Great Salt Lake State Park and local geologists were pretty excited a few months ago when they discovered some unusual mounds made of salt along the shores of the lake. The mounds are very rare, and they might even give us some clues about the surface of Mars! Take a look at these mirabilite mounds!
