Unlike most large lakes the Great Salt Lake is named for what it truly is â€“ 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 Americaâ€™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.
