Figure 3 A classic U-shaped valley (dashed line) is legacy of the Pleistocene glaciers emanating from Little Cottonwood Canyon. Can you denote the trim line along the northern (left) side of the valley? The multi-million dollar homes depicted happen to straddle the Wasatch fault, which remains active today.
