Legend of the Salt Lake

According to another legend, once an old woman had vineyards where the lake once was. One day an old woman passes through these vineyards and a bunch of vineyard from the owner of the vineyard says he suffered. So the owner of the vineyard does not want to give grapes to the woman. The old woman left you by saying that these vineyards are ice with salt. All the ties of this woman were salt, and today’s salt lake is formed.
Salt Lake Formation and Properties
The effect of the surrounding rocks in the formation of the lake is very large. Thanks to the rain made by time tectonics collapsed in this area. Then all these waters collapsed and began to melt the rocks. In the winter months, the lake, which is overflowing with water, dries in the summer and all these waters become steam. The area of the lake turns into a salt desert. Officers collect these salts from here and make us come to their tables.
