Fodor's Review

It may look strange from the road but this 1,500-foot-long, 15-foot-wide earthen creation that juts out into Great Salt Lake was created by artist Robert Smithson in 1970. The jetty, 16 miles from the Golden Spike site via dirt road, was submerged for much of the subsequent 30 years, before the lake level fell precipitously in 2002 revealing the structure again. Now preserved by the Dia Art Foundation, the snail shell-shape structure is considered one of the most remote sculptures in modern American art history.
