Image defaults to MST timezone (not UTC)

Bug Description

A UTC timezone would arguably make more sense, especially for the cloud.

My own biased version of this is that we've managed to get all of the official docker images to use UTC. The docker image for cirros is our last hold-out on using a localized timezone. Note that the docker image for cirros is a direct import of the LXC image.
