The Great Salt Lake is a lake in the pre-War state of Utah with Salt Lake City and New Canaan on its coast. The Great Salt Lake is now a great salt pan and mentioned as being a known territory of the White Legs.[1][2][3]

Background[edit | edit source]

After the Great War, the Great Salt Lake completely evaporated leaving only large salt beds.[4] In 2277, Ulysses was sent to the Great Salt Lake to rally the White Legs against the New Canaanites in hopes of killing Joshua Graham. By 2281, New Canaan, a town north of the Great Salt Lake, was destroyed. In the same year, the Courier went on an expedition with Happy Trails Caravan Company to Zion Canyon. Dead Sea mentions his origins as the lake, being taken from the area by Caesar as a baby.[5]

Appearances[edit | edit source]

Great Salt Lake would have appeared in the cancelled Fallout 3 project Van Buren, and is mentioned in Fallout: New Vegas and its add-ons Honest Hearts and Lonesome Road.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The Great Salt Lake is based on the real world location of the Great Salt Lake in Utah.

  1. The Courier: "Degenerate tribes?"
    Jed Masterson: "That's right. The folks that lived in Zion before the war, they didn't just get a little savage, they're downright feral. Most of them don't even speak English any more - you got to get yourself a New Canaanite translator to talk to them. The ones you really got to watch out for are the White Legs, from the Great Salt Lake. They'll attack just about anyone that ain't one of theirs."

  5. The Courier: "Who are you?"
    Dead Sea: "I am a loyal servant of Caesar, and I thank my good fortune for the day that he plucked me as a babe from the shore of the Great Salt Lake. For five years I have had the privilege of serving as a Decanus. If fortune continues to smile upon me, I will serve him until I draw my last breath. I hope that satisfies your curiosity about me, because I won't waste any more of Caesar's time talking about myself."
