Great Salt Lake
A new project on an ancient subject. Utah’s Great Salt Lake is the largest remnant of a huge inland sea that once covered much of western Utah and extended into Nevada and Idaho. Called Lake Bonneville, signs of this prehistoric body of water can be found in the white tufa formations and shoreline “bathtub rings” spotted throughout the West Desert. With its wealth of bird life, frequent storms, varied islands, history of human activity, and gorgeous sunsets, the Great Salt Lake itself makes for a fascinating photographic study.
