Spiral Jetty, Great Salt Lake

Ever since reading about Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty (1970) in college in the 1980s, I have wanted to visit the site.  Sunday morning after the Antelope Island shoot, I made a detour to see the jetty.  Got their around 10:00 AM and left at 11:27.  Next time I go I'll camp out in the area for a few days hoping for the photo gods to smile down with some light shows and shoot from a platform I am thinking of making for the top of my van.  I remember seeing an image of the jetty made by Darren Clark, I think last year.  It was absolutely stunning.  It still inspires me to explore this earthwork.
