And the Waters Keep Rising

By way of the art blogosphere's native Utonian (what do you call someone from Utah, anyway?) comes this link to a Salt Lake Tribune piece about rising water levels in the Great Salt Lake.

Spiral Jetty, it appears, may be spending a portion of this summer under water.

Elevation of the Great Salt Lake has risen, the Tribune piece reports, a foot in the last thirty days, and it is a foot and a half higher than it was at this time last year. (Compare the photo in this post with the one from last June linked in the post.) The rise in water level has been attributed to low- and mid-range snowmelt. The lake will continue to rise over the next month as snow melts off the tops of the mountains in the Wasatch Range.
