A Visit to Utah’s Bonneville Salt Flats

To view more photos and videos from the Bonneville Salt Flats, be sure to visit the Bonneville Salt Flats location page.

Northwestern Utah’s Bonneville Salt Flats is one of the largest salt flats in the United States. Instagrammers visit the white, crystalline natural wonder to capture scenes of its otherworldly landscape. The salt flats appear endless in the dry seasons, but when covered with rain water it becomes a giant mirror reflecting the sky and whatever stands on its surface.

In addition to providing an incredible photogenic draw for individuals, the Bonneville Salt Flats is also known for the many commercials filmed there and the numerous land speed records—the name for the highest speed achieved by a wheeled vehicle on land—that have been set there in recent history.
