  STS064-212-066 Mojave Desert, California, U.S.A. September 1994
The V-shaped west end of the Mojave Desert and highly reflective Rogers Dry Lake are captured in this synoptic photograph. Rogers Dry Lake, situated within Edwards Air Force Base, is an alternate landing site for NASA Space Shuttles. The northwest-southeast-trending San Andreas Fault and the northeast-southwest-trending Garlock Fault intersect at the western apex of the desert. Sediment transported from the San Gabriel Mountains and deposited along the southern Mojave Desert is highlighted by the subtle colors of the alluvial fans. Evident is the gentle curve of the intermittently flowing Mojave River.
