The Great Mysteries of the Great Salt Lake

Lying within the rugged wilderness of the state of Utah, shimmering like a mirage in the desolate scrubland surroundings is one of the largest and most unusual lakes in North America; the Great Salt Lake. With its fishless briny waters shimmering in the hot sun and much of its north and west shores uninhabited mountain peaks and barren salt flats, this enormous, enigmatic lake is a somewhat haunting place steeped in history, natural wonders, myths, legends, and mysteries. Here is a place thick with not only intriguing natural phenomena, but also its fair share of weird history and high strangeness.

Another weird natural phenomena associated with the lake is the alleged presence of “underwater quicksand” which is said to quickly devour those who walk upon it.
