Utah. The Great Salt Lake is located in northern Utah.
When the Mormon Pioneers first arrived in Salt Lake City, Utah they found a desert valley surrounded by nearly impassable mountains. At the time, nobody lived there. There was very little useable water (since the Great Salt Lake is saltier than the ocean) and even fewer trees.
