Image Caption: STS073-725-044 Utah Lake and Wasatch Range, Utah, U.S.A. September 1995
Utah Lake, the largest freshwater lake in Utah, is visible in this east-looking, low-oblique photograph. The lake, 23 miles (37 kilometers) long and 8 miles (13 kilometers) wide, covers 145 square miles (375 square kilometers). Utah Lake is drained at its north end by the Jordan River, which flows northward into the Great Salt Lake. South of the rugged, snow-covered peaks of the Wasatch Range and 3 miles (5 kilometers) east of Utah Lake lies Provo, a commercial and industrial city that manufactures steel and steel products, cast iron, and electronic components. The city is barely discernible because of a wispy cloud and light snow cover on the ground. Provo is also a tourist center, especially during the winter months, because of many ski resorts located in the nearby Wasatch Range.
