Bonneville Salt Flats

Some of you long-time followers know that the salt flats is a convenient stopover for me and that I have attended a few speed events on the salt in past years, as a spectator of course.
An interesting fact stated on the sign is that due to the curvature of the earth it is impossible to see from one end of the course to the other.  Think about that one for a bit. 

Ah but this visit was like no other for me as the salt bed was completely covered with water.

This is the sign at the end of the asphalt road that leads onto the salt.
Motor enthusiasts like to leave their stickers here.

The approach onto the salt.  
This Indian family (not Native American Indian) asked me if I would mind taking their picture
 and I said I'd be glad to, and so I began to get ready when all of a sudden he exclaimed
 "No,no, we mean with our camera."

The Honey Bucket.  
You will never look at a port-a-pottie again without thinking of Honey Bucket.
