Almost anything that gets captured in Great Salt Lake is eventually pickled. The briny waters, nine times more salty than the ocean, desiccate any flora or fauna that gets too close. Pickled driftwood is a common sight. Coming from the more verdant foothills or just falling off a truck, it eventually gets bleached and salted arguably giving it a more interesting and aesthetic texture.
