Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah.The Bonneville Salt Flats is a densely-packed salt pan in  Tooele County in northwestern Utah. The area is a remnant of the Pleistocene Lake Bonneville  and is the largest of many salt flats located west of the Great Salt Lake. The property is public land managed by the Bureau of Land Management and is known for land speed records at the "Bonneville Speedway" 

Looks like snow but its actually thick layers of salt.

Awesome Theater we found in Salt Lake City, right around Mormon Square.

Spiral Jetty.
The Spiral Jetty, constructed in 1970 by sculptor Robert Smithson, is one of the most iconic Earthwork sculptors. 
Built entirely of mud, salt crystals, basalt rocks, earth, and water on the northeastern shore of the Great Salt Lake near Rozel Point in Utah, it forms a 1,500-foot-long (460 m), 15-foot-wide (4.6 m) counterclockwise coil jutting from the shore of the lake which is only visible when the level of the Great Salt Lake falls below an elevation of 4,195 feet (1,279 m).
At the time of its construction, the water level of the lake was unusually low because of a drought. Within a few years, the water level returned to normal and submerged the jetty for the next three decades. 
The water level in the lake continues to fluctuate however, we were lucky to have to opportunity to see it while water levels were low.  
Originally black basalt rock against ruddy water, it is now largely white against pink due to salt encrustation and lower water levels.

Colorful Mountain tops.

Back on the road.

Ended up getting stuck for two hours without moving, due to a couple 18 wheelers veering off the road. 
Not looking so good.
