The Way It Is

Local Talk From Local People

By Jonah Owen Lamb
Posted // August 22,2007 - On a recent visit to Antelope Island, I saw people swimming in the Great Salt Lake like it was the Pacific Ocean. Tourists were floating on their backs in the water, lollygagging in the sun. City Weekly asked Web developer Robert Conner if he had ever swum in the lake.

I can tell you why not to. There are a lot of bugs, and it smells. But I hear if you get out to the middle, the bugs and smell go away. It’s just salt water. Actually I swam in it; I forgot about that. I was passing through as a tourist. As far as I know, it’s the only salt lake in the country, so that would explain why tourists swim in it.
