Blue Lake with Wetlands and the Bonneville Salt Flats, Wendover, Utah
Wetlands of Blue Lake and the surrounds in the foreground of this landscape photograph from south of Wendover Utah. Hot springs feed the wetlands areas with Blue Lake being the largest geothermal pond in the immediate area. The contrast of the surrounding desert and the lake accentuates the motifs of the region where, although it shaped and continues to shape the land, the actual presence of water is rare. Extending to the horizon in the background of the photo, the broad expanse of the Bonneville Salt Flats feels like the white ghost of the great lake that it once was.
