  STS040-609-037 Sacramento Valley and Coast Range, California, U.S.A. June 1991
This low, oblique, south-southeast-looking, synoptic photograph shows the Coast Range and Sacramento Valley of north-central California. Easily discernible are the checked pattern agriculture fields in the Sacramento Valley, Sutter Buttes in the center of the valley, forested coast ranges situated between the Pacific Ocean on the west and the Sacramento Valley, and the Sierra Nevada Mountains with Lake Tahoe in sunglint near the top left of the photograph. White clouds hug the coastline near the San Francisco Bay at the top right of the photograph.
