Great Salt Lake Shoreland Preserve…

“There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature- the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after the winter.”

    Do you mind me asking what kind of camera do you use? And, do you use filters?

    This looks like a wonderful spot! Your photos really capture the beauty of this time of year–understated and subtle. That last photo is spectacular!

    I didn’t know they had a Preserve. We just fly by and cross the Salt Lake to Nevada. The road has really improved and lots of companies mining the salt The first I drove through was 1980 and again in 2012. Thanks for sharing the beautiful pictures.

      Hi Linda! It’s about an hour North of Salt Lake… The smog is still visible sometimes out there, but you can’t cut it with a knife like you can in the Valley proper. It’s an awesome place to see!
