These were taken at the site of a former salt collection facility near where I used to work. When our offices first moved there, the site had a huge mountain of salt that was piled as high as a 4 or 5 story building. As the year wore on, massive barges carried the salt mountain away until it was gone, and then the site was closed. I believe the plan was to turn the area into more waterfront offices, but the Dot-Com bust ended those plans...
This is in Redwood City, California about 20 miles south of San Francisco.
