I'm a little embarrased to admit that I lived in Salt Lake but never actually went to the Salt Lake. I remember it being described with distain as smelly, salty, and swarming with flies. During this visit, however, we desperately needed a few moments of respite before returning to the airport, so we decided to venture on over to the lake. I must say, we were plesantly suprised. I had no idea how beautiful, how HUGE, and how peaceful the huge mass of water was. We stood in awe at its shores and layed our fears on its beaches. Every breath of fresh, salty air cleansed our minds and filled us with strength. I am so glad that we took the time to explore this little gem, and I am again in awe of the beauty that surrounds us.
