seabase sign
I took an early morning one day during the basketball tournament and went scuba diving in Utah, again.  The Bonneville Seabase is a warm-springs but with salt water, a bit west of SLC and just south of the Salt Lake.

silver jack
This is a Jack fish,  Jack the cactus didn't want to go diving today.

French angel
This one is a French Angel Fish.  This angel and the jack were about the size of a big dinner plate with the tails and fins hanging off. 

nurse sharks
This is a picture of 2 Nurse Sharks.  pretty much all you can make out is 2 dorsal fins.  Their heads were burried in a small cave and nobody wanted pull them out.  The owners tell us the sharks are about 6-7 feet long.  I guess they spend all there time hiding from divers because I never saw them swimming.

This is a little puffer fish.

This is a wide shot of the place.  The arched building is half of one of the ponds and in the foreground is the larger pond.
