What better way to idle away a sunny Sunday afternoon besides soaking up some rays (with appropriate sunscreen applied, of course) on the beach. In this particular instance the beach is on the shore of the Great Salt Lake at Ogden, Utah. There was absolutely no way I was going to pass up this opportunity. The last and only other time I had been at the Great Salt Lake was during the summer of 1970 or 1971, I don't recall which year. I was in the Air Force and was sent to attend a recording workshop at Brigham Young University.
The first time I saw the lake, I flew in on an American Airlines flight into Salt Lake City. I had made friends with a cute flight attendant (they called them stewardesses back then) during the flight. She had never actually seen the lake close up. I had a rental car and she had a few hours of layover time before her next flight. So, we ventured to the shores of the lake and did a little wading.
