  STS056-077-036 Sacramento Mountains, New Mexico, U.S.A. April 1993
The forested Sacramento and Sierra Blanca Mountains (lower left) of central New Mexico form the eastern edge of the Rio Grande Rift Valley, a rift zone that extends north-south through central New Mexico. Snowcapped Sierra Blanca Peak rises 12 003 feet (3659 meters). Fewer than 1000 years ago, lava erupted from Little Black Peak, a tiny volcanic center at the northern end of the dark, smooth, somewhat linear lava flow (left center). A partial view of the Hondo River drainage basin appears south of the east-west aligned Capitan Mountains (center of the photograph.
