"We came out here for this?"

We finally made it to the Spiral Jetty....I was super impressed. Mu was not...HA...

The Spiral Jetty is on the Northern tip of the Great Salt Lake. It was art project created by this guy named Robert Smithson in 1970...I guess he just started stacking rocks. The area is pretty surreal and almost feels like you're on another planet.

Salt residue is everywhere...Mu got caught checking some out.

The Salt Lake is really just a puddle. Only 30 feet deep at the very deepest point and usually only about 8 feet deep. Only one species lives in the water and little to no plant life from what i understand. Its pretty cool though and I really cant wait to go back out there a check it out again.
