  STS059-L04-123 Sierra Nevada Mountains and Honey Lake, California, U.S.A. April 1994
The rugged, snow-covered northern Sierra Nevada Mountains are evident in the bottom third of this northeast-looking, low-oblique photograph. Visible are Honey Lake, a 20-mile- (32-kilometer-) long salt lake near the top center; the northwest-southeast-trending Diamond Mountains west of Honey Lake; Eagle Lake near the left; Mountain Meadows Reservoir and the deep blue waters of Lake Almanor near the center left; and Lake Davis near the center of the photograph. With the exception of the terrain surrounding Honey Lake and Eagle Lake, most of the photograph shows part of Plumas National Forest.
