When I drive east from SLC, Utah i often stop at the Bonneville Salt Flats on the border of Western Utah.

This time it was a huge reflective beautiful lake... about 1" deep (if that)

I got some nice panoramas of the mountain range that was right there.

Anyway thought you'd like to see an interesting part of the world. I've always said that Utah has so much amazing diversity that is awesome for a photographer like myself.

Have you been to the Salt Flats in Utah? Have you been to any salt flats?

Very cool!! Which salt flats are these?

I'm presuming the same ones - the part where the Bonneville speed trails are held.

New Zealand has a bit of a connection to that - and the movie is how I know of them.

"Herbert James "Burt" Munro (Bert in his youth; 25 March 1899 – 6 January 1978) was a New Zealand motorcycle racer, famous for setting an under-1,000 cc world record, at Bonneville, 26 August 1967. This record still stands; Munro was 68 and was riding a 47-year-old machine when he set his last record.

Working from his home in Invercargill, he worked for 20 years to highly modify the 1920 Indian motorcycle that he had bought that same year. Munro set his first New Zealand speed record in 1938 and later set seven more. He travelled to compete at the Bonneville Salt Flats, attempting to set world speed records. During his ten visits to the salt flats, he set three speed records, one of which still stands.

His efforts, and success, are the basis of the motion picture The World's Fastest Indian (2005), starring Anthony Hopkins, and an earlier 1971 short documentary film Burt Munro: Offerings to the God of Speed, both directed by Roger Donaldson"
