We went to Antelope Island to view the Great Salt Lake. The attendant taking our park fee informed us that the gnats and bugs were still active and biting at this time, but things were improving. We stayed in the car most of the time...More

The problem with the Great Salt Lake is nature! It's a place to see, but the bugs and smell make it hard to enjoy. It's cool you can walk out sooo far and you can float because of the high concentration of salt. But the...More

Driving East on I-80 one sees warnings of blowing salt dust. Five miles from the city centre one is still driving through the salt flats. In the main the sight of water is a mirage.

We took a short trip to Antelope Island State Park to get a better look at the Great Salt Lake. It’s a largely barren landscape but it is stunning; the lake is so still you see incredible reflections of the mountains. The visitor center is...More
