I’ve missed a couple of these challenges so I hope I can make up for it by sharing a few pictures that I captured recently during our visit to Utah. This week’s Photo Challenge set by Kristin Snow at The Daily Post is Change.
Change is all around us. It can happen in the blink of an eye or sometimes over long periods of time. The Great Salt Lake in Utah is the largest salt-water lake in the Western Hemisphere and in an average year covers 1,700 square miles.
It is part of what was once, in prehistoric times, Lake Bonneville, which covered most of western Utah. Looking at the lake from Antelope Island one can easily imagine the waters spreading out as far as the eye could see, but over the centuries the scene has changed and now they have greatly diminished due to evaporation, leaving large tracts of salt residue along the shores. How much will this landscape change in the years to come?
