Salt Flats Nessie

Driving west from Salt Lake City toward Nevada you'll see Salt Flats Nessie. She's at MM 21, on the right side of the highway. You can't miss her. Made of old tires, she is repainted frequently and you can see her for quite a ways when approaching. Nessie is west of the Tree of Utah, and between the two there is also a shark coming out of the salt water.
