Mondrian Salt Flats

Mondrian Salt Flats

Viewed from “Eureka,” the largest airship in the world, the vibrantly-colored Cargill Salt Flats of Redwood City, California present a Mondrian-esque scene. After over a century of salt production, Cargill Salt announced plans in 2006 to decommission the flats. Now, five years later, environmentalists want the 1433-acre plot to be restored as bay wetlands, while Cargill hopes to develop housing for 30,000 residents.
