Image Caption: STS048-603-034 Great Salt Lake Desert, Utah, U.S.A. September 1992
The Great Salt Desert, the dry, salt-encrusted bed of prehistoric Lake Bonneville, is featured in this west-southwest-looking, low-oblique photograph. Interstate Highway 80 traverses west-east, north of which appear the Lakeside Mountains and, to their east, the Newfoundland Mountains. The Newfoundland Mountains are almost completely surrounded by shallow turquoise lakes. The north-south basin and range region of northeastern Nevada is apparent (top of photograph).
