Image Caption: STS51B-146-0122 Bear Lake, Great Salt Lake, and Bear River Range, Utah and Idaho, U.S.A. May 1985
The Great Salt Lake, the largest salt lake in North America, is apparent in this south-southwest-looking, low-oblique photograph. A railway causeway bisects the lake--easily distinguishing the greenish, shallower, saltier north portion of the lake from the bluer, south end. Dark blue Bear Lake, 20 miles (32 kilometers) long and 7 miles (11 kilometers) wide, lies east of the snow-covered Bear River Range. The snowcapped peaks of the Wasatch Range (top center) are visible, with Salt Lake City barely discernible to the west. The whitish eastern portion of the Great Salt Lake Desert appears in the right center of the photograph.
