  STS040-604-062 Central and Northern Utah, U.S.A. June 1992
This west-northwest-looking, low-oblique, panoramic photograph features the Great Salt Lake and the Great Salt Lake Desert of central and northern Utah and the valleys and mountain ranges of northeast Nevada. The north-south-trending Wasatch Range extends northward to east of the Great Salt Lake. The snow-covered, west-east-trending range visible in the lower portion of the photograph is the Uinta Mountains. The West and East Tavaputs Plateaus (bottom right to near the center of the photograph) join the Wasatch Range. Bear Lake and snakelike Flaming Gorge Reservoir lie northeast and east, respectively, of the Great Salt Lake.
