|We went on this crazy quest to try and find large scale salt formations. The responses we got ranged from that they're easy to find and all over the place; they exist but they're hard to find; you have to go into to the industrial area to find them; and it was just the wrong time of the year. We never did find them, but we had plenty of time to contemplate the emptiness of what we weren't finding. Take a look at the photo on pp. 178-9 of the 2000 edition of Eyewitness Travel Guides Jerusalem & the Holy Land if you really want to see what we were looking for.
