Fremont Island is the site of Kit Carson's cross. Carson, a member of Captain John Fremont's 1843 expedition to explore the Great Salt Lake, chiseled the cross on a rock outcropping at the island's summit. This image is extracted from the 22-part video series THE GEOGRAPHY OF UTAH, conceived and written by Albert L. Fisher, PhD (University of Utah). The series encompasses the political, cultural, historical and sociological geography of the state of Utah. It describes the activities, the land and the people. Much of the video material was videotaped on location throughout the state of Utah, giving the student and interested viewer valuable field trip experiences.
