Great Salt Lake
Where am I standing? Looks like I am standing high in the skies of some mountain right? Not really… I am actually standing at sea level in front of the Great Salt Lake and the centerpiece of the picture is not the top of some mountain but in fact an island in the middle of the lake.

The water is so reflective it is pretty hard to distinguish where the lake ends and sky begins.

Every year, thousands of visitors come to see this magnificent work of nature that is the Salt Lake.


Antelope Island
The Salt Lake nests Antelope Island, which is large enough for you to drive inside and perhaps to camp over night if you will.

Salt Lake Beach
The lake actually has a “beach.” Although it is not what a California kid would consider a beach, the locals are happy with what they have.

Salt Lake Beach
Crowds of people gather at the “beach” to swim, play, and have fun. The water is very shallow for the most part but does get deeper as you get further out. The best thing about swimming here is being able to float really easily. The salt levels in the water makes practically anyone float, even if you don’t know how to swim at all.

Canoeing at Salt Lake
If swimming isn’t your thing, you can always go canoeing.

The Great Salt Lake invites you to visit regardless of your age. Whether you are young or old, there is something in store for you.

Random picture alert: Saw this growing by the beach side and it captured my camera’s attention.

     I must say, ya…the Great Salt Lake is a great place to relax especially during the weekends. I would imagine the locals frequenting it very often considering the lack of beaches near by. But even as a Southern Californian with access to many great beaches, this is pretty darn good.
