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.
S P I R A L J E T T Y
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.
Dinner in a Dutch
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!
