The Bonneville Salt Flats appear as a large white expansive stretching across the left side of this image of Utah.

It is a densely-packed salt pan in the northwestern part of the state that is a remnant of the Pleistocene Lake Bonneville, and the largest of many salt flats located west of the Great Salt Lake (the bright green body of water at the top of the image).
