In all the years I've lived in Utah, I have never actually tried to float in the Great Salt Lake. It's about time, right? So spur of the moment (which actually means, I had the idea in the morning, wanted to run and do it right that minute, but had to come back home, help the kids do all their chores, pack food, get swimsuits, towels, diapers, etc. before taking off in the afternoon), we hop in the car and head over to SaltAir, where the admission is cheap! The kids were stoked. Micah had just been learning about the lake in his fourth grade class. We drilled Colin on his knowledge of Jim Bridger and his discovery of the lake (which he thought was the Pacific Ocean). I'm sure this is one of the last days we could do this, what with the weather getting cooler.
