“The salt crust has been shrinking and thinning for decades due to both human and environmental factors. The ancient watercourse owes its existence to Lake Bonneville.

Great Salt Lake, in Utah, is over 80 miles long and from 20 to 32 wide, and is the outlet of the Bear, Ogden, Jordan and Weber Rivers.
