Nice report,
The picture of the Great Salt Lake brings back lots of memories, I lived in SLC and the area for the better part of the 80's andf 90's. man that sound so long ago! Really miss it but interesting to know that the lake is only something like 30 feet deep at its deepest and I have been told that it averages about 15 feet. I remember many times during the summer thunderstorm season, hearing stories of sailboat being lost on the lake due to the sudden wind and accompanying waves. I never really saw many folks sailing or doing any boating activity on the lake! But if you read the history of the area, apparently during the early part of the 1900's there was quite the resort and what not at the lake...
Thanks, enjoying the read!!
