The Great Salt Lake
The Great Salt Lake is named for the salt content in the water. It’s the largest natural lake west of the Mississippi River as it covers approximately 1,700 square miles. It is 75 miles long and about 35 miles wide. Mineral deposits of salt are left behind once the water evaporates. It makes it a great place to have a salt mill and many companies took advantage of the abundance of salt. The Great Salt Lake also draws people for a variety of outdoor activities boating, hiking, picnicking and sightseeing.
