summit ridge view of Utah Valley - the Lake Mountains appear in the distance. Utah Lake and the Utah Valley metropolis are wholly hidden by cloud deck. This view could be the same as that of hundreds of years ago; except for the stationary 'blip' of cloud that I think marks the position of the Geneva Steel plant (it didn't move for the hours we saw it).
