    Great Salt LakeGreat Salt Lake Salt Lake City, Utah
    sitting in the hot sun of northern Utah is the biggest salt lake in the entire western hemisphere, and the fourth biggest terminal lake in the world; and the 37th biggest lake on this earth. During an average year, the salt lake covers an area of about 1700 square miles, although it does fluctuate because of the shallowness and the amount of rain that might come. In 1963, the lake went to its lowest recorded level at 950 square miles, while in 1987, it would grow to its biggest in history and recordings to cover more than 3300 square miles. This monstrous and very unique lake has been referred to as America's Dead Sea, although it provides a natural habitat for millions of native birds, shorebirds, brine shrimp and waterfowl, that includes the biggest staging population of Wilson's phalarope in the entire world. It occupies five counties and contains numerous islands, although the term used for islands is still unanswered in terms of uniformity. According to the Utah Geological Survey, there are eleven islands that are recognized, which again, will depend on the level of the water that sits in the lake. Because of the warm waters of the lake, there is a unique lake-effect that creates some hefty snow storms and drops quite a bit of snow at times. But these usually occur during the late fall, early winter or in the spring because of the higher temperatures that exist between the lake and the air above it.
