The parking lot is very close to the salt flat area. You don't need to walk far to see them. The best pictures come if you walk past the crowd to where it's less touched. You don't need to walk far to for this, maybe 1/2 or 3/4 a mile.
I do caution people that it's extremely hot even at 5pm. It was 105 when I went in May at the end of the day. Bring more water than you think you need.
On your way back to the parking lot, look up at the mountain for the small sign that says "sea level"
