Welcome to the Bonneville Salt Flats

Try to picture a place completely devoid of life forms.  Look out across 30,000 acres covered with a thick layer of salt and absolutely flat. As one article stated, “It looks like a frozen lake bed covered with snow.” Welcome to the BONNEVILLE SALT FLATS! Continue reading

So far our two stays have been quite different from what is shown in this video, but fun none-the-less.  Continue reading
