Wendover, Utah: Bonneville Salt Flats

Race your car if you like. Or just count the I-90 "Drowsy Driver" warning signs, and spot the twisty tracks that veer from the freeway into the salt from cars that ignored them.

This was the coolest experience. We went out far enough that we couldn't see anyone else. It is vast. Definitely worth the detour, especially if you are into land speed records.

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

We stopped at the Bonneville Salt Flats just after a snow/rainstorm.

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.
