Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah is most known around the world for what?
Many land speed records have been set at the Bonneville Salt Flats. The area is quite unique for its flat, dry, and barren terrain, which makes it ideal for racing cars at 500+ MPH. Wow, now that is fast! I am exhausted just thinking about how fast racing cars can travel here.
The Great Salt Lake covers 2,100 square miles, with an average depth of 13 feet. The deepest point is 34 feet. Did you know that with all of the salt in the water you can float very easily. No doggy vest needed for me!
The name Utah comes from the Native American Ute tribe and means people of the mountains. Boy they got that right. The mountains are everywhere. I need to come back in the winter and tryout some snowshoes to discover what dry powder is all about. Living in California, our mountains get the first snow from the Pacific which is full of moisture which is good for our water supply. Skiers though, call it Sierra cement.
I have heard that if you humans don’t use sunscreen your lips can get sunburned and swell up. I am sure glad that us dogs don’t have to worry about swelling lips!
Stay tuned, I will be back tomorrow to let you know how my road trip is going. Thanks for checking in.
