  STS073-707-006 Black Rock Desert, Smoke Creek Desert, and Warner Mountains, California and Nevada, U.S.A. September 1995
The gray-green alkaline sinks of Smoke Creek Desert and Black Rock Desert and the northern part of Pyramid Lake in northwestern Nevada are apparent in this north-northwest-looking, low-oblique photograph. The blue waters of Goose Lake, a salt lake approximately 30 miles (50 kilometers) long and 10 miles (16 kilometers) wide are visible near the upper right of the photograph. East of Goose Lake are the north-south-trending Warner Mountains and the blue-gray waters of the Upper, Middle, and Lower Alkali Lakes.
