In Hebrew Yam HaMelach means the Sea of Salt.
Blogger-friend Meead got me thinking about salt today. He just posted an incredible photo of one of the six "salt-mummies" discovered recently in Iran. The mummy is 1,700 years old and you can see his long white hair and beard. I never heard of such a thing! Go have a look!
Hmmm, I wonder what surprising treasures are hidden in and around the Salty Sea, waiting to be discovered. . . .
