      A beautifully written plea for help on behalf of Great Salt Lake. Heartbreaking.

        It reminds me of this article I read a while back about the Salton Sea. That article focuses more on the health issues from the toxic dust of the drying riverbeds, which doesn't yet seem to be a huge problem in Salt Lake City, but may become one if the lake keeps shrinking.

        An important difference between the two lakes is that the Salton Sea was artificially formed, while the Great Salt Lake descends from a lake that has existed for tens of thousands of years. Thus the Salton Sea never had time to become as important for local ecosystems as the Great Salt Lake is.

      Beautiful, tragic, haunting reflections and photography (best viewed via original link).
