Land locked, with some regions seven times saltier than the oceans, the Great Salt Lake covers about 1700 square miles of Salt Lake City area. Lying at the bottom of a 35,000 square mile drainage basin, the lake is just a small remnant of a Pleistocene Epoch Lake Bonneville. Covering 20,000 square miles, Lake Bonneville's shoreline waves once lapped against the majestic Wasatch Mountains to the east.
