Road to Bonneville Raceway, Tooele County, Utah

A major part of my life's work has been spent behind the wheel driving down one road or another. The key here: just to see what might turn up; what might next put me behind the lens. My overall objective: looking at the lay of the land and scoping out what all we've put on it; getting a handle on the defining characteristics of American regions. This task is now pushing four decades. I've worked at least once in every state. I've logged 1000x1000s of miles; the images in my archive number upwards of 30,000 or so. My inventory of subject matter-my Table of Contents-is multiphasic and ever expanding. The category "The Road" is amply represented-it is, obviously, what I am most often looking at and focusing upon. Indeed, it often is the only real subject on hand. So there you go. Here's a road for you. In Utah. A storm is passing through. I stopped in a sea of salt and looked straight ahead.
