Mount Nebo Loop, Utah Left and below: view north. The Wasatch Front is in the distance with Utah Lake to the left. The foreground valley is due to an en echelon step in the Wasatch Fault. One branch runs along the mountain front to the right and dies out to the south, the other begins at the tip of the mountains on the left and runs along the western flank.
