Marsian landscape

The road between 29 Palms and Amboy, California, crosses the dried out bed of a salt lake. But even in this barren landscape, somebody has found a profitable resource....

A company in Amboy, which is basically a ghost town, mines the salt deposits and adds color to the flat whiteness

the black cinder cone in the back is Amboy crater, an old volcano
