The Great Salt Lake, Utah (MP-J)

Publications for Teachers

By: W. L. Stokes

Unlike most large lakes the Great Salt Lake is named for what it truly is – it is great and salty. It is also notable for other reasons. Viewed from space it is an unmistakable landmark in the midst of the Rocky Mountains. To geographers it is America’s Dead Sea. To geologists it is the shrunken remnant of a great Ice Age predecessor. To engineers it is an obstacle to travel and a menace to the works of man. Those who would profit from ti regard it as a rich liquid mineral deposit. To tourists it is a natural wonder like Grand Canyon and Yellowstone Park to be viewed and experienced at least once.
