Lucin Cutoff Crossing Promontory Point of Great Salt Lake, USA – October 6th, 2011

USA - October 3rd, 2011

This orthorectified image shows part of the Great Salt Lake, in Utah, USA. The lake itself appears dark grey, with bridges crossing it visible as long, light grey lines. The checkered area in the upper right quadrant is a series of man-made salt pans from which minerals are extracted.

Crossing the image from the top center to the middle are the Promontory Mountains, located on a promontory (peninsula) in the northern part of the Great Salt Lake. Promontory Point is at the southern tip of the range. Today, trains cross the point via the Lucin Cutoff railroad causeway across the lake, visible, as mentioned previously, as a think grey line.

    A beautiful image/view of the Great Salt Lake.

    There’s a spelling error on the last line.
