Starting in Promontory, I traveled west around the top of the Great Salt Lake, mostly following the old rail bed of the Transcontinental Railroad, investigation various curiosities along the way.
The Morton Thiokol Corporation has an impressive display of rockets out front.
The Golden Spike National Historic Site, where the two railroads, the Union Pacific and Central Pacific, met for the first transcontinental railroad.

Next door, the remains of the Rozel Point Oil Fields are also somewhat scenic in a curious way.
