The reason we flew to Salt Lake City was to be close enough to drive to the Bonneville Salt Flats. About an hour and a half west via I-80, the land begins to look like snow and the only thing reminding you it's not is the 93 degree weather. We mainly stayed off road in the middle of the dryer parts, right before the Rest Area exit. But if you drive down to the Speedway exit, you'll come across a beach-like area which is in fact the tracks where the speed races are held. I have never seen so much salt in my life. The water reflections make it a perfect backdrop for awesome picture taking and is no wonder why all those car commercials are filmed here.
