Dusk on the Great Salt Lake

The Great Salt Lake is one of the saltiest bodies of water in the world, saltier than the ocean, but not as salty as the Dead Sea. A swim in its waters provides surprising buoyancy, and stings the eyes a bit.

The Great Salt Lake is the remnant of ancient Lake Bonneville, a huge body of water which left terraced shoreline marks on many of the Mountains surrounding the Great Basin between 15,000 and 30,000 years ago. - Martin van Hemert
