The water is a very shallow "dead" lake. That is, it doesn't have any way for the water to leave. It is a salt lake or rather a borax lake. However, they are not biologically dead, as the flamingos are always wading across it and eating something that grows there. These types of lakes are very common in this part of the mountains.
Thank you for the clarification and taking the time to do so, Jeff.
Thanks for sharing the lovely photos.
