Playa Lake in Utah, USA

A playa is a flat dry lake found in arid or semi-arid regions. It is periodically covered by water that filtrates into the ground or evaporates into the atmosphere, leaving a deposit of white salt, sand and mud that cracks and forms patterns, such as the one found here in the Basin and Range province of Utah, USA.
