Great Salt Lake

Taken May 31, 2007. My Dad and I have made it a point to go to the various parks around the Great Salt Lake when I'm out visiting. In 2007, we went to Antelope Island, which more or less tops off the Oquirrh mountain range on the west side of the Salt Lake valley. The park itself is home to a fairly diverse mammal population, as well as some fascinating rock features thanks to the shoreline erosion from the old Lake Bonneville. Seen here, Dad's looking out at something out over or on the other side of the lake (I don't remember), though the picture makes it look like he's observing the rock with binoculars.

Note the horrible air quality - I brought down the blue luminance some to make it look more natural; without it, the picture looks like this. It only gets worse over time, as the state doesn't seem to care much about preserving the area for everyone.
