Photographer's Note

The Bonneville Salt Flats are a 159 square mile salt flat in northwestern Utah and are the remains of the glacial Lake Bonneville. The area is largely inhospitable to plants although this photograph was taken right on the edge of the salt flats, with some plants surviving.

The salt flats are located on the eastern border of the casino-resort town of West Wendover, Nevada.

The area became famous when Malcolm Campbell set numerous land speed records and the Bonneville Speedway is used for high-speed race cars which have achieved speeds in excess of 600 miles per hour.
