The Bonneville Salt Flats Speedway, where surface speed records are established, and Interstate Highway 80 to its south are apparent in this north-looking, low-oblique photograph of the western part of the Great Salt Lake Desert. The mountains and valleys visible to the west are part of the basin and range region of eastern Nevada. East of Wendover, Nevada, (not discernible) a turquoise saltwater lake is apparent.
