Photographer's Note

One thing that is tough about shooting in the salt flats is that they are dirty and scummy. I'd love to find a spot where there is just pristine white, making lovely, sparkling dunes. Instead, they are muddy and uneven and seem to flaunt it. Luckily, I live fairly close by, and I've learned a lot because of your comments already, so here's a thanks in advance! Any more tips on taking pictures of dirty snow are appreciated!

This man was headed back to his car, lugging a large jug of water from the Great Salt Lake. He was quite far away, so I didn't ask him why he collecting this water, that most Utahns will not swim in (though they did once). The lake is now quite polluted. Salt is one thing, but it also contains all of the fertilizer residue from the upper Great Basin in northern Utah. No one really talks of "reclamation" because the only living animals in the water, brine shrimp, still thrive.
