The Great Salt Lake
We're in Salt Lake City, so of course we have to make a trip to see the Great Salt Lake. I mean we wouldn't be the great Verizon reps we are customizing t-shirts with the slogan "Just like the Salt Lake, my signal never freezes" without actually seeing if it's true.
Utah.com the lake is so salty that it does not support any fish life or most aquatic species. I must say that Casey and I would agree that you would never guess that the Great Salt Lake didn't support aquatic life by the smell. As soon as you step foot out of the car your smacked in the face by a potent "fishy" smell.
Brine shrimp and brine flies however can handle the saline and thrive off the Great Salt Lake. Another interesting fact (pulled directly from utah.com) is that the Great Salt Lake is actually "a remnant of Lake Bonneville; a great ice age lake that rose dramatically from a small saline lake 30,000 years ago."
