BYU graduate: “I don’t think I ever visited Utah Lake while living there”
Utah Lake is an incredibly close and diverse natural resource for area residents. It’s also incredibly overlooked.
Consider this conversation I had last week with a woman who grew up in Northern Utah and lived a couple of miles from the lake for four years while attending Brigham Young University.
“I don’t think I ever visited Utah Lake when I lived there,” she sheepishly said with a hint of regret. (She now lives in Los Angeles.) The topic came up as we were discussing nearby recreation.
That said, this woman isn’t the only one to miss out on the lake. There are a lot more. Which is why one of the primary goals of the Utah Lake Commission and this website is to help create demand for the lake by promoting its benefits and correcting some of its misconceptions.
Readers: Do you know anyone who has since discovered the lake after overlooking it? What made it click for them?
