This is what the salt looked like on the International Course during the Bub meet. Top left was taken from highway 80 heading inland. Top right shows various degrees of preparation with drags and wheel packers. Bottom left is 8 miles in running in the same direction. Bottom right shows puddling in the middle of the course.
