Image Caption: STS074-711-017 Great Salt Lake, Spring Bay, and Promontory Mountains, Utah, U.S.A. November 1995
Northern Great Salt Lake and Spring Bay (far northern portion of the lake) are discernible in this south-southeast-looking, low-oblique photograph. The light shoreline surrounding the bay and the lake was submerged from the mid-1980s through the early 1990s because of above-normal precipitation during the 1980s. The lake level is subject to seasonal and yearly variations depending on climatic patterns. East of the lake are the north-south-trending Promontory Mountains, near the base of which is Golden Spike National Historic Site (not discernible), where the Continental Railroad was completed in May 1869.
