About This Image
The Great Salt Lake was mistaken for the ocean when the first pioneers discovered it, which is partly why the Salt Lake area was settled in the first place. It was believed that there wasn't any further place to go. There are no fish that can live here for the salt water is too salty; however, brine shrimp do live in the lake. I believe this is used as fish food for aquarium grown fish. One of Morton's salt plants is nearby as well to harvest the salt contained in the lake and the nearby Great Salt Flats. Here the shoreline near the marina is captured at sunset with the moon glowing overhead.
