... be great to get to the salt flats in Utah tonight so we could get some pictures in the morning...so I took over and drove the remaining 400 miles on pretty much an empty road! It was dark out most of the way so we had a lot of moths and bugs that were just too tempted by our lights...the result was a very very buggy windscreen.

Without problems we find the end of the paved road, where some minivans are just making their entrance onto the flats. Like the mustang before us we extend the same courtesy ...
