LDS Man Takes 17 Years to Trek Around the Great Salt Lake

Magellan circumnavigated the Earth. A man named Jon Sanders circumnavigated Antarctica.

Rick Porter circumnavigated the Great Salt Lake.

Why? Same reason as those other guys. Because he hadn’t ever heard of anyone else doing it.

“Maybe someone has walked around the entire lake before,” says Rick, “but I don’t know anybody who’s done it. It’s a crazy thing to do.”

He says that last part from firsthand experience — 17 years’ worth. That’s how long it took him to circle the 275-mile perimeter of the Great Salt Lake.
