Wendover, Utah: See Curvature of the Earth

Despair, flat-earthers. From the rocky outcrops above Wendover Cemetery you can look east over the Bonneville Salt Flats; on haze-free days (and at dusk) you can see I-80 curve over the miles-away rim of the Earth.

Aria Blvd, Wendover, UT
I-80 exit 1. Turn north onto Aria Blvd and drive uphill. The road ends at Wendover Cemetery, on the left, just past some houses. You'll see a rocky outcropping overlooking the cemetery; climb as high as you're comfortable and look east, over the Salt Flats.

Curvature of the Earth

Follow the road past the cemetery going north and drive up the ridge with the radio towers to get a view of the Curvature of the Earth...without getting out of the car!
