Kennecott Stack and the Great Salt Lake


Contributor and drone pilot Weatherman created this amazing aerial view of Utah's Great Salt Lake as well as its most prominent man-made landmark: the gigantic Kennecott Garfield Smelter Stack.  Known as "the stack", it's one of the world's largest chimney structures, standing 370 meters (just over 1.2k ft.) above the surface.  Built in 1974, the chimney is part of the gigantic Kennecott copper smelter, which refines copper ore from the nearby Bingham Canyon mine, the world's largest open pit mine.
