It's similar to the Dead Sea. A large saline lake without no outlet, in the middle of the desert. Agricultural runoff water is its main source of replenishment except in wet years when mountain runoff (especially from the Whitewater River to the north) recharges it.

I've taken pictures there a few times. It's important to protect equipment if there's much wind. Blowing salt particles get into everything. A cheap Tamron zoom I had sounded like a rock crusher upon trying to focus it after a trip down there.
