The Heart of the Wasatch
The Wasatch Mountains of Northern Utah is the western edge of the greater Rocky Mountains in the eastern edge of the Great Basin. This impressive mountain ranges most popularly known as the "Wasatch Front" because the majority of the population of Utah lives along its western flank in a series of valleys. Since I presently live about 200 yards from the steep mountain face of the Wasatch Front, it is pretty much part of my daily life. In fact, as I look out my window I am looking at the steep hillside of the Lake Bonneville shoreline. In less than half an hour, I can be driving on the Alpine Loop with use like that one shown in today's photo.
