2018 Great Salt Lake State Park

Utah State Line

Utah State Line.  We have never been to Utah and was amazed at how beautiful it is.

These rock formations look like sand dunes.

We stopped to camp at the Great Salt Lake Park.  There were only five spots available for camping, a parking lot with water and electric hook-up.  We were right on the shore of the Salt Lake.

The Great Salt Lake looks massive however it has receded in the past years.  Where the water receded it left salt patches. It looked like snow or ice.

If you want to fish or swim this lake is not for you.  Only brine shrimp can survive is the extremely salty water.  Also, there are hordes of brine flies that blacken the shoreline.  The salt sticks to your body when you swim in the lake.  However, the neat part is, that you can float in the Salt Lake without even trying.
