[QUOTE]Originally posted by NaturalResources: [QB] I just realized that too Peaser... The 1589 map is very interesting because it does show two lakes, one of which is further southwest than the other. Closer examination reveals the southern lake is named "Lago de Conibaz". I have run across it on several maps and at first I believed it to the GSL. However, I found an earlier map that features both the GSL and a lake called "Lago de Conibaz". (I will try to provide an image here for you shortly). Also, "Lago de Conibaz" is often featured showing an island in the center, while the ones I believe to be the GSL do not. In addition, with the exception of the 1589 Mercator map, "Lago de Conibaz" is always shown draining into the Arctic, while the lake I believe is the GSL, with one exception, is always shown draining into the Pacific via the Colorado. (The exception shows it draining via the Rio Grande into the Gulf of Mexico.) I believe that "Lago de Conibaz" is an early representation of Winnipeg Lake, rather than the Great Salt Lake. However, because of the reasons I have cited, I haven't put the highest priority in pursuing this lead at the current time. [/QB][/QUOTE]
