  STS066-157-134 Angara River Valley, Russia November 1994
The valley of the Angara River, flanked by the Verkhne Angarsk Range to the north (bottom of image) and the Jkatsk Range to the south (top of image), is visible in this near-nadir view. This view is located to the east of the northern end of Lake Baykal. Snow covers the mountains and the river valley. Though portions of the Angara River Valley are swampy (right center), agricultural products are grown in the river valley during the summer months. Iron, coal, and gold deposits are found in the Angara Basin.
