This area is a remnant of an ice age lake which the Great Salt Lake used to be a part of. These days it’s used for racing I’ve heard when the water level drops in the summer. In May there was about a foot of water over the salt flats. It’s funny because you can stop by the side of a busy highway and step out into the flats and because of the water it looks like you’re on a tropical white sand beach somewhere. We harvested some salt and looked for cool formations where the salt crystals had formed over branches. They looked just like rock candy. This place is pretty surreal.
