Driving out of Wendover, Utah across the absolutely straightest road I've ever been on. If it wasn't for the wind, I would not have needed to steer, for about an hour. Right straight across the salt flats. Salt as far as you can see to either side of the road. It was beautiful, empty, and it truly looks unlike anyplace you've ever seen.Finally there was a change from all the endless salt, some beautiful sparkling blue clear and very very salty water.
Antelope Island State Park in the Great Salt Lake, it was a long walk across the beach to get to the water.And then there was a whole lot of wading through calf high water, about a half mile. We finally reached a sand bar and we were finally in the water. We spent a lot of time just floating in the very salty water. Even if you don't know how to float you absolutely can thanks to the density of the water. Five times saltier than the ocean. Thank goodness they had showers so we could rinse off, because the salt water had dried to a salt crust by the time we got back to the car. My skin felt very soft afterwards though!
