Random Geology Picture - Temperature-Elevation Correlation

Here are some older pictures I had taken. They are panoramas of the Oquirrh Mountains (pronounced Oaker) looking east. I had taken the pictures to illustrate changes in the temperature gradient as you moved up in the atmosphere. While it was raining down in the valley, you can pick out the freezing point in the atmosphere by just looking at where the snow started. Also you can see by this snow line, that the mountains are sloped to the left (the north).
