Bonneville Salt Flats

Description:

30,000 acres of flat ancient salt beds, a remnant of the prehistoric sea, Lake Bonneville, which once covered a huge expanse of the Great Basin, and is now reduced to the Great Salt Lake. The Salt flats are legendary for their high speed raceway, which provides a perfect surface and size for the jet powered rocket racers which attain speeds of over 600 mph. Permits must be obtained for filming, racing, rocket shoots, archery, and any off-the-wall experimental use. Hiking and sightseeing are considered transient uses and do not require a permit. No improvements, no facilities beyond an interpretive sign. Bring water, sunscreen, first aid, and a car repair kit.

Directions:

3 miles east of Wendover, take exit #4 of exit #4 off I-80 and go 1 mile north then 3 miles east.

November's Featured Park
The North Cascades have long been known as the North American Alps. Characterized by rugged beauty, this steep mountain range is filled with jagged peaks, deep valleys, cascading waterfalls and glaciers. North Cascades National Park Service Complex contains the heart of this mountainous region in three park units which are all managed as one and include North Cascades National Park, Ross Lake and Lake Chelan National Recreation Areas.

Badgers are animals of open country. Their oval burrows (ten inches across and four to six inches high) are familiar features of grasslands on sandy or loamy soils of the eastern plains or shrub country in mountain parks or western valleys.
