Bonneville

by Alain W. Bélisle

It was to be my first trip to Lake Bonneville, the legendary desert where annually since before the 1950’s, cars and bikes of all types from all around the globe make the trip to Wendover Utah, to attempt breaking land speed records. As a photographer, getting to make the trip and experience it all in person as well as getting to shoot photography there, was one of the most exciting things I ever experienced.

The location was once a great salt lake which dried up several million years ago leaving a thick layer of salt. Utah is home to a treacherous span of desert that the American Colonials began crossing to get to California when the United States were founded. The days of racing this desert began two hundred years ago at a time when wagons were popular.

Lone Star Rally

Lone Star Rally

Yee haa ! Did you recognize the Texan accent ? I hope so because that’s the rebel yell that resounded with a hell of a howl throughout my office after I hung up the phone in early October. I had just received a call from Pascal, the chief editor of this magazine. He asked me if I was available to attend the famous Lone Star Rally. This event has been going strong for eleven years and takes place on the edge of the Gulf of Mexico, specifically in Galveston Texas, just 50 minutes south of Houston. Needless to say it caused a small commotion with my work colleagues and in less than two-foot stomps my hat and cowboy boots were packed. Hit the road cowboy !

It is therefore with great enthusiasm that I accepted to participate in this event (a first for me) and share with you this very unique experience and perhaps give you a little insight so that you may want to attend it yourself one day. Upon my arrival in the land of oil (and believe me the refineries which border the motorways around Houston very much remind us where we are), I immediately made my way to the core of the historic city with the turbulent past. Historical nod : the Frenchmen Cavelier De LaSalle, a resident of New France, spent the late 17th century claiming this area in the name of King Louis XIV.
