Shari had to use the restroom there and I've always wanted to get out and quickly explore as the rest stop that sits on top of a mountain. It is sort of the gateway to the the salt flats and the views up there are expansive.
While Shari took care of business I quickly climbed a well-defined walking path to a peak and snapped a few pictures. It was super windy up there and it looks like the trail also serves as a horse trail, so I suspect it could go quite a ways. My time was pretty limited and I simply took pictures and ran back down to the rest stop.
I figured I'd share the pictures.
