Definitely Storm Mountain Island, although I had to look at several photos to be sure. The other side of the canyon looks farther away because there aren't many trees (I imagine the pioneers had cut them all down for timber by then).

In particular, look at this photo and compare the features in the background:

Also, see this aerial view and compare features on the "island" itself.
