The University of Utah
Against the Wasatch Mountains
This is the place where I live and work. It is very conducive
to doing mathematics. In the background are the Wasatch
mountains in early Fall. To give you an idea of the scale, the
mountains on the right of the picture are about 25 miles away.
In the foreground is the University of Utah. The tallest
mountain you can see is called Twin Peaks and is just
barely visible in the center of the picture, peeking over
Mount Olympus. It's 11,300 feet tall (the University is at
4,500 feet). The standard route to its top starts at about
6,200 feet. It's a spectacular hike. The round trip easily
takes all day.
