Remember Borax? It was a popular household cleaner that at one time was “mined” in Death Valley, originally these huge wagons pulled tons of borax from Death Valley with teams of 20 mules. Eventually a closer, cheaper borax mine was discoverd. Walking around the borax flats is like walking on snow. It’s very weird that it’s warm, yet you are leaving footprints in the white residue.
