The Wasatch Range is a mountain range that stretches about 160 miles (260 km) from the Utah-Idaho border, south through central Utah in the western United States. It is generally considered the western edge of the greater Rocky Mountains, and the eastern edge of the Great Basin region.

The northern extension of the Wasatch Range, the Bear River Mountains, extends into Idaho from northern Utah after running east of the Great Salt Lake in this orthorectified image.

North of the Lucin Cutoff, a causeway crossing the lake that appears here as a white line, are a series of bays that extend towards the mountains. These bays of the Great Salt Lake include Bear River Bay, Willard Bay, North Bay and South Bay.
