Bill,  I worked at a Cement Plant and we had a large waste dust pond (production byproduct).  Two workers went in pond with rubber boots, they got water inside boots, very high alkaline H2O, received severe burns, feet, legs. Never came back to work. Over 11 PH. I'd be careful!  Don't know lake PH?

Sanpanza....there is evidence of kayaking on the lake on a post from tomd on the topic Presidents Weekend 17! I've heard this week from an old-timer that it has happened , the water is very alkaline and a sailor came back to camp with all hair missing on his leg from where it had been in the water.......Safe sailing!

There has been so much dope smoked in that Valley it has to have happened at one time or another.

Yup, that is a consideration, so I don't know if Kayaking will actually be feasible. Would love to hear if anyone has ever attempted it before.

I've seen water in it quite often. I'd guess there is ample water now due to the recent rains

I know this is a funny question but can anybody who has recently visited Saline Valley tell me if the dry lake has filled with water? Reason I am asking is because I have always wanted to float a kayak in the lake but it is a dry lake: assuming it was temporarily filled.

Thanks for your info in advance.
