SPIRAL JETTY

A Cosmic Adventure

The northern end of Utah's Great Salt Lake is a stark, otherworldly place. Extending from the shore is a mysterious earthwork called the Spiral Jetty. Curious, we drove north to see it firsthand.

On the road...

After two and a half hours we rounded Rozel Point, finally arriving at the Jetty.

Built by the artist Robert Smithson in 1970, Spiral Jetty was constructed with black basalt boulders. Fifteen feet wide and 1500 feet long, the Jetty winds counterclockwise in a great cosmic spiral. It's even visible from outer space.

The wind was whipping so we donned our Selk'bags, wearable sleeping bags built for adventure.

Sweet dreams

Bacon first, brushing second.

After breakfast, we discovered some curiosities while exploring the lakebed.

We went ball dancing.

What's down there?

We took far too many pictures and had a #Steller time.

This place is magic!
