  • Something you would see in a postcard! Its so gorgeous and very fun to go to. Went for a little swim in the great salt lake(please don't get the water in your mouth). Sadly the great salt lake is drying up slowly unless we can do something about it. They have tons of activities to do. Love this place!
  • Beautiful and very unique. Definitely worth saving for a sunny day - the expensive views are a big highlight. Great place for birding - bring your binoculars!! And other wildlife too, bison, deer, pronghorn.... You can swim in the lake if the weather is nice. There are showers and bathrooms and a beach. Visitor center is worth checking out, they have some great info.
