Salt Flat Desert

In the western deserts of Utah, there are places where the salt deposits are so prevalent that there is nothing but salt. These are the famous "Salt Flats" used for racing cars. But south of the Salt Flats there are huge flat valleys of land that grows some vegetation but is still saturated with salt. Here is one of those valleys. It may look like snow on the ground, but it is salt. These valleys are impressive in the silence and solitude. They are obviously not a prime place for future development and they are not scenic enough to ever be considered to be a national park or monument. Subsequently, they are a nice place to visit.
