This is a picture of the beautiful Wasatch mountain range in Utah. This range is 160 miles and is part of the greater Rocky Mountains. Mount Nebo is the highest peak in this range, reaching 11,928 feet. 85% of Utah's population lives within 15 miles of the range. I chose this site, because I have family in Salt Lake City and it is definitely one of my favorite places to visit. It is so different from the basically flat, wooded terrain I am used to (in Cumming, GA), that I remember thinking that I couldn't possibly be in the same country. The picture does not even do justice to how incredible these mountains look above the Salt Lake City skyline.
