Made 4/30/1971, Great Salt Lake Desert, Utah.

Roy Tea stands astride the Hastings Trail which is clearly visible as it strikes out across the flat to pass the north end of Floating Island, the dark mountain on the left. To the right and at greater distance is Silver Island, named for mineral exploration there in the 19th century not for its color, which is ruddy.
