Fires near the Great Salt Lake, Utah, are marked with red dots in this true-color MODIS image. The forest-covered Wasatch Mountain Range stands out in dark green to the east of the Lake. The brownish-appearing mountains running East-West are the Uinta Mountains. Peaking through the clouds near the top of the image is bright blue Bear Lake, which straddles the border of Utah and Idaho, just west of their border with Wyoming.
