Ice in the lake?

How cold does it have to get to freeze an
entire lake? Does it have to be below freezing
for several days in a row to freeze the entire
lake completely solid?

I know the Great Salt Lake doesn't freeze
because of the amount of salt it contains,
but how 'bout Utah Lake - does it freeze???

Re: Ice in the lake?

I'm sorry, but I don't know the answer to any of your questions. I've never even seen Utah Lake close up.

In the vicinity of the Chain Lakes, I heard the weirdest sounds ever, sometimes quite loud, from the ice. It took awhile to figure out what it was. I was glad it wasn't dark during that section.

Bigfoot. Yep, it wasn't the ice. Bigfoot.

It sounded way more like space aliens than bigfoot.

No such things as aliens.

If you heard the noise, you'd be a believer.

Take me to you leader? LOL!

Joking aside, I have heard some strange sounds up in the Uintas a few times. Couldn't quite tell what it was. And, when I did the Highline 3 years ago, we camped on Gilbert Creek a couple miles west of Kidney Lakes, and we didn't hear a thing! Now that was kinda spooky. Not a thing! No birds, squirrels, wind, nothing!
