  STS062-098-159 San Joaquin Valley, Millerton Lake, and Pine Flat Lake, California, U.S.A. March 1994
This low-oblique, east-looking photograph captures the rugged Sierra Nevada Mountains and Sierra National Forest. Visible are the lighter green grass and scrub cover of the lower altitude alluvial fan and the patterned fields of the agriculturally rich, north-south-trending San Joaquin Valley across the center and bottom third of the photograph, respectively. Pine Flat Lake is discernible south of the dark blue waters of Millerton Lake, a California State Recreation Area. A small portion of Lake McClure and the Merced River is visible near the left center of the photograph.
