It's a long stretch of slab but the Spiral Jetty has been calling to me all this year. What used to be a rutted, dusty or muddy, eventually rock riddled dirt road is now a gravel expressway. I was wondering how it would look with the lake so low. I rode out to the Bear River Bird Refuge on the way up but didn't pull out the camera. Mid-day light was flat. Other than a couple of Herons it was just me and the Sea Gulls so I motored on to the Jetty. Good thing the day started with a little spice and color. There's a lot of soupy murk in these basins. The best time to poke around the shoreline of the Great Salt Lake is sunrise or sunset but I was only there for flat light. After droning back along the Wasatch Front on I15 I launched up Farmington Canyon for a view from the ridge line. It takes you to the east side then pops over for the view west. Yuk! The Jetty is out there, to the right, over Promontory Point (the ridge between the bush and slope of the hill). These basins have always been susceptible to inversions but we seem to have perfected the process. Looks like a murky winter for the valley. The only consolation will be a good winter for skiing.
