We’ve experienced much warmer than normal temperatures this year. Some years, when it gets cold enough and conditions are just right there’s a natural phenomenon that takes place on the Great Salt Lake that’s unlike anything you’ve ever seen.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
