  STS068-249-049 Santa Lucia Range and Salinas River Valley, California, U.S.A. October 1994
The tree-covered Santa Lucia Range and the central coast of California are captured in this low-oblique, west-southwest-looking photograph. Wave patterns off the Pacific Ocean and San Luis Obispo Bay are reflected in sunglint. Estero Bay lies just north of San Luis Obispo Bay. East of the Santa Lucia Range lie the irrigated agricultural fields of the Salinas River Valley and the western Diablo Range. The numerous coves and headlands of this part of the coast provide refuge to sea otters and seals.
