On the way to Sturgis this year, I stopped by the Bonneville Salt Flats. I have always wanted to go out on the salt and now was a perfect opportunity.
I was a little worried about the effects of the salt on my bike. Would the salt cause a cancerous corrosion? I'll let you know, but I couldn't resist going.
The Utah Rocket Club hosts an annual rocket launch called "Hellfire," think of it as a Vertical Speed Week. The first rocket that I saw launched went 16,000 ft high, pretty incredible. Out on the salt the distances, the flatness, the whiteness, were just overwhelming, throw in a few rocket launches and it was an unforgettable day.
