1. Re: Itinerary planning from Salt Lake City to Bonneville Salt

Greetings and welcome back to the desert.

Bonneville Salt Flats and Arches are in the opposite direction of one another from Salt Lake. So it doesn't really matter if you do the Salt Flats at the beginning or ending of your trip. You should look at Google Maps and see where they are in relationship to one another.

How many days do you have for the total trip? It will help in offering suggestions for an itinerary. Generally we suggest at least 3 days to spend in the Moab area including Arches. Here is a good guide for Moab. http://www.discovermoab.com/index.htm

The Salt Flats could be a half day activity or full day depending on how much time you wanted to spend there. You could spend the night in Wendover Nevada and gamble for a while. In the morning, wake early and take sunrise photos on the way back to SLC if you're that ambitious.
