Road Trip USA (18)

The Bonneville Salt Flats:

Imagine a place so flat you seem to see the curvature of the planet, so barren not even the simplest life forms can exist. Imagine the passing thunder of strange vehicles hurtling by on a vast dazzling white plain. This is not an alien world far from earth; it is Utah's famous Bonneville Salt Flats.

The Bonneville Salt Flats is one of the most unique natural features in Utah. Stretching over 30,000 acres, the Bonneville Salt Flats is a fragile resource administered by the Bureau of Land Management. It is located along I-80 near the Utah-Nevada border.

PLEASE VIEW LARGE

Thanks for coming along and don't forget to bring your radar gun. Smile

Fantastic scene there Ty.
It really does look like you've come to the end of the earth, & one step further & you'll go over the edge..

I've never heard of these Salt Flats before. The nearest I have seen to these are in parts of Death Valley. I called our son over to have a look at this one. He was particularly interested in the Toyota.
The shot itself is REALLY good.
