Salt Lake City, Utah
Bonneville Salt Flats
The Bonneville Salt Flats are a salt pan leftover from the Pleistocene
Lake Bonneville. The flats were named after U.S. Army officer Benjamin
Bonneville, who explored the area in the 1830s. The flats have been home to many speed -record attempts since the early 1900s, and have also been used in major motion pictures such as Independence Day and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End.
