Beautiful, especially at sunset. Great place for portrait taking, and many folks doing that --especially on the westbound side.

Had a lot of fun. Do drive carefully, because there are pockets of wet mud that will send you swerving! Also, your car will need a good wash afterwards. We found a self-service coin operated car wash in West Wendover at the intersection of Butte and Pueblo.

Drive to the end of the road. Great sign and the water is so clear.

Bonneville Salt Flats

This is the world famous Bonneville Salt Flats, site of numerous land speed records. The races are held every year over Labor Day weekend. Drivers who reach 200 mph receive a hat letting everyone know they did it.

We are planning a trip there again in 2008 to test the limits of my boyfriend's 1995 NSX. I'll report back on our efforts.
