USA - June 21st, 2011

Several mountain ranges, their peaks capped with snow, can be observed near the Great Salt Lake, in Utah, USA. An area of salt flats is also visible to the west of the lake.

To the north of the lake is the Wasatch Range, mountains that stretch through Utah and Idaho. To the east of the lake are the Uinta Mountains, a subrange of the Rocky Mountains, unusual because they run on a horizontal axis.
