Having the opportunity to visit a site helps to experience it in different aspects and how the different variables involved had defined the site as it is now. Having the opportunity to visit Owens Lake was a learning experience. It is really shocking for me to find out places like this in a country like the US where many people, even the government, are involved in protecting natural places. I come from a country where you don’t see the kind of interest in preserving the land. However, I haven’t seen natural landscapes almost destroyed because the human presence, but here.
