A 1.3 mile dirt road with washboards off Badwater road, will lead you to this one of a kind place. A very large basin where where wind forms the rock salt jagged spires. Apparently these spires grow very slow, maybe an inch every few decades.
Miles and miles and miles of salt in every direction. Do not fall or slip or you will be cut to pieces. The rock hard shards of salt make a weird sound when banged. Try it!
Had read about this in the Information Center and decided to take the short detour off the road. Well worth seeing the gnarled crystalline salt spires close up. Did not see any of the golf balls of salt. Like the surface of a coral reef. Not sure why this is not rated higher as a place to visit as I... 更多

The Devil's Golf Course is well worth the short gravel road drive to see. It is best not to wander far out onto these sharp, beautiful formations lest they are destroyed!
It is amazing to me that anything would grow like that on this earth. Miles and miles of it, salt and hard to walk around on or among, Got to be careful not to fall in it.
