Bonneville Salt Flats

All photos taken at the Bonneville Salt Flats, just outside of Wendover, UT.
Photos taken November 27, 2010, between 10:30am and 12:00pm.
Weather is overcast, snow visible on many of the mountains on the horizon.

Conditions on the Salt Flats: Snowy in some places, wet in some. There are areas that are dry, but as shown in the photos the top crust is dry, but in places the salt layer is not very thick and just underneath is largely muddy in the areas where we were. I’ve included one photo of my business partner standing on the crust so you can see the amount of mud we got from his standing there.

Also, it is important to know that if you are taking vehicles on to the salt it is important to plan to wash them as soon as possible after you leave the Salt Flats. The salt has been known to cause damage to pain, rubber, and electrical systems… any metal, really. Be sure to schedule time for this.
