A stop in Salt Lake City provided some stunning views of the mountains—so different from the rural surroundings and hills of Joseph Smith’s birthplace in Vermont. The ice on Utah Lake, a relatively shallow, freshwater body of water had clearly been frozen, broken, and reassembled more than once, a large, intricate jigsaw puzzle.
The views of the Great Salt Lake showed no ice, of course, and the “snow” was probably mostly salt deposits. While water freezes at 32F, this Lake doesn’t begin to turn solid until the temperature reaches 27F.
Thanks for flying with me again today. Please consider sharing the link to this blog with others who might enjoy it.
