The Newfoundland Mountains (left center) in Utah, USA, rise up above the flat Great Salt Lake Desert in this orthorectified image. The surrounding salt flats are located at an elevation of about 4000 feet, while the highest summit of the mountain range, Desert Peak, tops out at 6800 feet.

East of the mountain range is the Great Salt Lake (right). The lake is surrounded by both mountainous and flat areas. Of note nearby is an agricultural area composed of circular fields to the north of the lake and a series of evaporation ponds along the southwestern shores, all of which are visible in the full image.
