Today’s post is full of beautiful images of the Salt Lake and downtown SLC.
A bit hard to read, it says:
Daughters of Utah Pioneers No. 115 Erected 1934 Garfield & Lake Point Resorts
From 1881 to 1893 Garfield Beach was the most famous and finest recreation resort on the shores of Great Salt Lake, with its railroad station, lunch stand, restaurant, bath houses, and pier leading to the dance pavilion, and with the pioneer steamboat “City of Corinne” exhibited at anchor. lake Point was located 1 1/2 miles west. A three story hotel erected there by Dr. Jeter Clinton became a stopping place for overland stages. The boulder used for this shaft was taken from “Old Buffalo Ranch” one half mile west”.
Beautiful scenery, but I should have been plugging my nose – the lake has quite a briny odor to it!
Some unique scenery behind us while photographing the lake
Much more SNAP! fun to come this week!
