Made 10/61, Great Salt Lake Desert, Utah.
View looking west. Donner-Reed Trail at the "Big Bend." The trail runs from lower right to left center, then curves at the blue arrow to the right behind the trackmaster. The arrow points in the approximate direction the trail takes at this point which is northwest. Floating Island is the closer dark mountain just to the right of the Trackmaster. The mountain behind Floating Island and above the Trackmaster is Silver Island. Pilot Peak is the faint mountain on the distant skyline just left of the vehicle.
