Camel Trek

This photograph was taken in Ethiopia in the Danakil Depression, a dried up sea that is one of the lowest and hottest places on earth. Nomadic salt workers travel here during cooler months (still near 100 F!) to mine salt, using camels to carry the slabs back to markets in towns days away.
