Next one is a feature of nature hidden in the shadow and it was late in the game.

Here is another image that shows a bit more of this chromatically defined space.  Note - this is imagery from Bing's map service.

I flew over this barren area recently, prompting me to find its location using an online image mapping service.

If you were looking for a fossil of a fish, you could do no better than to look near here.

OK, the fish fossils would be from the ancient lakebed exposed in southwest Wyoming, say around Kemmerer. The area pictured is east of Kemmerer, near the Sweetwater County line.

 

I have to guess what those nasty-looking holding ponds are for--maybe they're associated with trona mining? Trona is the ore used to make baking soda and soda ash for the glass industry, and I believe that at some stage of processing, evaporation is required? 

 

Or it could be some other kind of salt processing....

You got it!  

 

I actually don't quite know what the ponds are filled with, but I assume it's really nasty stuff.  In the 3rd picture I posted you can see the ponds are a "safe" distance away from the the refinery to the NW that I believe Exxon owns.  I thought it related to oil/gas - but it certainly could be trona.

 

You are up with the next location.

I think that's the National Easter Egg Dye Strategic Reserve.  Established during the Coolidge Administration and defended ever since by Wyoming senators as essential to the national defense.

Something the same and different.... Note the bright colors in a wintertime scene.

Closer view, showing what appears to be a farmstead. The word "farm" is often associated with these.
