Great Salt Lake "monet"
Photo By Ray Boren

  • Title: Great Salt Lake "monet"
  • State/Province/Region: Utah
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Rozel Bay, northern end of the Great Salt Lake
  • Nearest Town: Corinne
  • Brief Directions: 15 unpaved (and progressively worse) miles from Golden Spike National Historic Site, west of Brigham City, Utah (and I-15), via the small railroad/farming community of Corinne and Golden Spike National Historic Site (the paved road ends at the site).
  • Notes: I visit this area at least once a year, usually more, in part to track the ups and downs of the Great Salt Lake's level and that ebb and flows impact upon Robert Smithson's iconic landscape artwork, "Spiral Jetty," just below where this photo was taken. This bay is just to the west. For most of the past almost-40 years since the jetty was created, it has been under water. A drought and dryer conditions the past eight years have caused the Great Salt Lake to retreat. Usually the jetty is stranded, high and dry, on the salty-muddy lakebed, and the bays become white playas.
  • Best Season: Summer
  • Description: As the Great Salt Lake retreated in summer's heat, it left behind a pocked lakebed in this bay just west of artist Robert Smithson's "Spiral Jetty," at Rozel Point. This was taken from the Rozel hilltop, looking west. For a true sense of size: The black dots are boulders.
  • Gear: Nikon D70, telephoto lens; high-clearance vehicle!

    "Absolutely in the right place at the right time". So very rare to see a double rainbow let alone have your camera with perfect glowing conditions.. Great capture
