On the 26th my girlfriend decided we needed to check out the Great Salt Lake. She wanted to know just how salty it was. A quick drive up I-15 and over to the causeway to Antelope Island and I was able to check it out. The lake has a 24% salinity content, which makes it more buoyant than the ocean. It tastes an awful lot like salt, more-so than the ocean that’s for sure. I expect to make a trip back here for a sunset in the summer.
The Causeway has an unreal number of bugs/sand flies around it. Most of this was picked up in that 2 mile stretch of road.
