Trent Nelson | The Salt Lake Tribune.Wednesday, June 8, 2011..Tourists at the access point to Silver Sands Beach at the Great Salt Lake Marina, Wednesday, June 8, 2011. As recently as November, 2010, the beach area visible to the right, all the way to Saltair in the background, was dry land. By the time all the snow melts, the level of the Great Salt Lake will have increased 5.7 feet. That's a record increase, but will only bring the lake level up to its historic average.
