Salt flats

Another view of the

Bonneville Salt Flats.

The salt flats looked

weird.

I thought it would be a

soft squishy surface

when walking out onto

the flats.

The flats were actually

hard like ice and kind of

slick. 

I can't believe they set

world speed records out

here.  Seems difficult to

get traction to gain

speed.

They say it is so flat

here you can see the

curvature of the Earth. 

We didn't really see

that.

Keith loves to take

pictures of his truck

having fun in the

outdoors.

Looking down from the

canyon we hiked up

into.  This was very

steep over a short

distance.

The truck having fun

again.

Tracy having fun with a

rock.  Why not?

It was really pretty up

here and quite dusty.

Views from our hike up

the canyon.

The high valley on the

other side of the canyon

was nice.

Rocky

It is pretty here.

Canyons are steep and

rocky

More cool canyon

rocks.

Looking from the

canyon in the Gochute

Mountains eastward

into Utah. 

We camped up here and

it was cold!

Keith forgot his cold

weather clothes and

was cold.  I brought

everything I owned that

was fleece so I was

warm and toasty.

We hiked down into this

valley for a short while.

It's cool how that cloud

is so low.

The only people we saw

out here were folks

driving to church. 

Where were they

coming from?  We were

in the middle of

nowhere.

We hiked to Tom's Canyon (Google Map) in the Deep Creek Mountains of western Utah on the

weekend of 10 Sep 05.  This was a nice BLM wilderness study area south of Wendover, NV.

There was nobody else out that weekend, so we had the place to ourselves.  It was a tough

hike up Tom's Canyon, with a 1500 foot elevation gain in a mile and a half.  But I think we'll

have to get used to that kind of elevation gain out here.  It was a pretty long drive from home,

and the mountains were pretty small, so I don't know how often we'll come back here...but it

was nice.  You can also check out the GPS track log.
