Lake
“The Great Salt Lake, a half-hour drive northwest of Salt Lake City, is the largest inland lake west of the Mississippi, measuring 72 miles long, 34 miles wide, and up to 50 feet deep. It is a remnant of a much larger freshwater lake, Lake Bonneville. Following a fall in the water table, this lake was left with no outlet and shrank as a result of evaporation, leaving the Great Salt Lake Desert. The combination of evaporation with the inflow of surface waters rich in minerals led the salt content of the lake to rise steadily, and at one stage it reached 27 percent (eight times as high as the world's oceans). At the south end of the lake are bathing beaches and a recreation park. Like the Dead Sea in Israel, Great Salt Lake is salty enough to allow bathers to float without sinking.”

“You might not expect great sushi in Utah, but this place is phenomenal. We highly recommend the garlic edamame, the black jack, and sunrise rolls. Go early and expect to wait! There's usually an hour wait for dinner. They can take your number and text you when your table is ready, so it's a great opportunity to mingle down 25th Street.”
