Great Salt Lake, Utah


August 10-11, 2009

Today, I got to go swimming in the Great Salt Lake in Utah.  It is called the Great Salt Lake because there are salt deposits in the lake.  That's where people in the area used to get their salt.


We camped there that night.  It was hot camping on the dunes.

There were brine shrimp in the lake, that's sea monkeys.  When I lay on my back, the salty water let me float among the sea monkeys.

Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge In Utah


August 12, 2009

Today, I went to the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge in Utah.  It was weird.  First, we watched a movie about why they had to create a refuge since all the farmers were draining the water and the birds were dying.

I saw two grebes dancing in the movie.  And, in the refuge, I saw real grebes.
