Provo Temple and Utah Lake

Most of the communities in Utah Valley, south of Salt Lake City, are concentrated between the steep mountains of the Wasatch Range and Utah Lake. This photo of Provo, Utah taken from the Bonneville Shore Trail, shows this narrow corridor. In the foreground is the Provo Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. In the background is Utah Lake. The larger structure to the left-middle of the image is the LaVelle Edwards Stadium on the Brigham University Campus. The trail follows the shoreline of the prehistoric Lake Bonneville which filled the entire valley. Utah Lake and the Great Salt Lake are remnants of this ancient lake.
