Sunrise across Deer Creek Reservoir on a chilly winter morning, a raging 15 degrees F (-9 degrees C). The wind began to blow about the time this shot was taken, making the conditions almost unbearable. The morning light catches the east-facing side of Mount Timpanogos of the Wasatch Mountain Range. This crack in the ice spanned across the entire lake, showing signs of ice movement, even in the depths of winter.
Although the reservoir is managed by the Bureau of Reclamation, recreation is managed by Utah as Deer Creek State Park. The park is open year-round, with ice fisherman being the predominant visitors during winter. Most of the eastern perimeter of the reservoir is shallow water, with a translucent layer of ice, while this shot is captured out in the middle of the lake, with ice likely several feet thick.
The Deer Creek Dam was completed in 1941 and is 235 feet (72 meters) high. The maximum depth reaches 137 feet (42 meters). [source: Wikipedia].
