Posting Posts

All along the south beaches of the Great Salt Lake you can find posts similar to these ones. They are the only remnants of The Great Saltair Resort built in 1893. The resort had good success until a fire burned it to the ground in 1925. After rebuilding the following year the resort could never regain it's former glory and was abandoned in the late 50's. A final attempt to save it in the 1960's failed and in 1970 the Saltair Resort was destroyed again by fire. The history just makes the interest with these posts even greater, as they provide the perfect foreground to the Great Salt Lake sunset.
