Salt deposits along the shores of Great Salt Lake have been harvested for culinary purposes for millennia. Father Escalante’s journal of 1776 described how Native American Indians used the salt deposits. Mountain man Jedediah Smith harvested Great Salt Lake salt and even John Fremont and Kit Carson commented on how easy it was to pick up salt off the lakeshore. Today salt harvesting is big business but an individual can still find beautiful salt crystals ranging from pink to white waiting to be harvested along the salty shores.
