Title Resevoir Butte
Identifier 034T
Subject Terraces; Mountains; Rock formations
Description Top photograph: Resevoir Butte looking north and slightly east. South and East Reservoirs are all on same terrace level which is Bonneville level--high. "Submerged Mountains" in right middle destance. Far distant white streaks are Great Salt Lake Desert--which merge on right (hid) of Great Salt Lake. Note sharpness of top. Quartzite. Very hard hence a meager talus which has not filled any one of the reservoirs. Bottom photograph: Reservior Butte looking nearly south showing terrace levels on right--west. At middle distance one of the "Submerged Mountains" and a small front of another. Far distance white streaks are parts of Great Salt Lake Desert. Note large depression or "reservior" at left on Bonneville level, quite large, quite deep. Note rocks acting as barriers, producing cup effect. The Pony Express marker is almost directly beneath the plane.
