Great Salt Lake

This picture taken at the entrance to Antelope Island State Park in Salt Lake City, Utah. Where I am standing use to be the edge of the Great Salt Lake. As one can see it has receded to where it is barren now. The guard at the gate identified that there has been a drought for the past seven years. In addition most of the water in the area is being redirected to the farmers land. The Lake water is out there, I just chose not to drive out to the Island to actually see it.
The Mountain in the background is part of Antelope Island.


  1. This must be our mountain for the day??? Love it!!

  2. Probably all the water has been diverted to California?

  3. I really thought it was a huge lake. I never would have thought it was so dry.
