I have a friend back in Salt Lake who is helping with some exploration of Sevier Lake for potash extraction. He's been posting interesting images to facebook that are very evocative of Titan. Thought they'd be interesting to folks around here. Sevier Lake is a highly saline terminal lake.

Beautiful images! If I recall correctly, it likely smells like Titan, too. ('Specially when your footprints hit those wonderful pockets of contained gases in the mud.)

Sevier Lake feels slighted:
