Little Salt Lake sits to the east of Parowan Gap. Aerial photographs show that the lake is mostly dry. With much enthusiasm, I had planned to hike the dry lake bed. Unfortunately, barbed wire and private property signs prevented me from doing my hike. All I could do was to take a couple of pictures from the road at the southern edge of the lake.
