My Aramí basking in the final glow of a hot July day. The poles in the background mark the depth of the ancient Lake Bonneville. #lakebonneville #bonnevilleshoreline #summerevening #ara #aramí #childhood #girlhood #sunmersunset #sunset

A rather small sign saying not to take vehicles out into the water, heavily dwarfed by the scope and scale of the water resting on the salt, all the way to the nearest mountain. #2016usatrip #utah #bonnevillesaltflats #bonneville #saltflats #sign #nature #scenery #scenic #picturesque #lakebonneville

So the #bonnevillesaltflats had turned into #lakebonneville #lake oh well, out onto the salt again next time. #2016usatrip #utah #bonneville #saltflats #sign #nature #scenery #scenic #picturesque

Something big is happening... Like whale sized. Actually, like the size of three blue whales 🐳 🐳 🐳 end to end. Details coming soon... #conceptsketch #Bonneville #SevenSaltySeas #wips #comingsoon #SLC #LakeBonneville

The primary functions of Bonneville Lock and Dam are electrical power generation and river navigation. The dam was built and is managed by the United States Army Corps of Engineers. At the time of its construction in the 1930s it was the largest water impoundment project of its type in the nation, able to withstand flooding on an unprecedented scale. Electrical power generated at Bonneville is distributed by the Bonneville Power Administration. Bonneville Lock and Dam is named for Army Capt. Benjamin Bonneville, an early explorer credited with charting much of the Oregon Trail. The Bonneville Dam Historic District was designated a National Historic Landmark District in 1987.

The Bonneville Salt Flats is a densely packed salt pan in Tooele County in northwestern Utah. The area is the largest of many salt flats located west of the Great Salt Lake, stretching over 30,000 acres. The Salt Flats were formed when ancient Lake Bonneville dried up. The lake eventually shrank below its outlet, and so its water became salty. As water continued to evaporate, salt deposits were left in many areas. The flats include a variety of micro environments. In some spots the soil is so salty it prevents vegetation growth. In other places you will find many kinds of plants and animals. Ponds and marshy areas can be found in spots near the edges of the flats that provide critical habitat for plants and animals. Wind and water combine to create the flat surface of salt. Each winter, a shallow layer of standing water floods the surface of the salt flats. During spring and summer, the water slowly evaporates while winds smooth the surface into a vast, nearly perfect flat plain. The salt surface contains potassium, magnesium lithium and sodium chloride.

Who let the archaeology students loose on a Danger Cave tour?! Had a blast with @vintagewife today! Lots of sun and salt.

Checking out a canal at fish springs wildlife refuge. It's amazing how much water there is here considering it's straight south of the bonneville salt flats and in the middle of the desert. And yes. There are fish. And so many birds!!! Another amazing place in the middle of nowhere of Utah. #utah #utahdesert #fishspringsnationalwildliferefuge #fishspringswildliferefuge #exploreutah #watchforrattlesnakes #lakebonneville #westdesert #ponyexpresstrail #noswimmingallowed

Over a century ago, a newspaper editor in #SaltLakeCity gazed out at the vast salt flats of #LakeBonneville and saw speed lines where there was only emptiness. He dreamed of creating a destination to rival the #IndianapolisSpeedway on a landscape that seemed preternaturally made for humans' insatiable taste for velocity. The Indy-style speedway never materialized, but an annual tradition did. Each August, speed virtuosos gather out in the barren expanse to test the limits of human engineering and go faster than the year before. From our cover story, "Moon Men."

Utah's Great Salt Lake - for which the city is named. It's the remnant of Lake Bonneville - a great ice age inland lake that covered much of the eastern part of North America's Great Basin region - basically all of Utah and large parts of Idaho and Nevada. The lake is pluvial - which is the Latin word for rain - meaning it formed from precipitation rather than tributary flow, and as it's receded over thousands of years the waters have evaporated leaving behind their salts. It's too saline to support fish and most other aquatic species and is inhabited primarily by algae, and the brine shrimp and brine flies which feed on it - which apparently number over one hundred billion! .
