Buffalo Point, Antelope Island State Park, Utah, USA

On a hazy winter day, the horizon is soft. The Great Salt Lake blends with the sky and the cities along the Wasatch Front are hidden by the winter inversion.

The view begins with Bridger Bay, looking north.  You can make out the campground road and sites in the snow.  To the right, the snow-capped Wasatch Mountains rise above the cities and towns.

To the left, Fremont Island is in the foreground looking connected to the Promontory Peninsula behind it.  Most of the northern and western ranges around the lake are blocked by haze until you swing left to Stansbury Island and the Stansbury Range to the south.

Continuing left you eventually view the middle portion of Antelope Island, south of your position.  Frary Peak just peeks above the hill in front of you.
