Great Salt Lake Causeway

This unique near-vertical view shows the large railroad causeway
which traverses the lake east to west. The causeway acts as a
barrier and separates the deeper waters in the southern half of
the lake from the shallow waters to the north. Biological ma-
terial highlights small gyres (1) in the lake. Salt fields are
visible at the left center of the photograph. Also visible in
this view are Fremont Island (2), Carrington Island (3), and Pro-
montory Point (4). Snow covers the higher elevations of the Pro-
montory Mountains. (S36-83-018)
