  STS073-712-091 Sand Hills, Southern California, U.S.A. October 1995
Almost the entire 35-mile (56-kilometer) length of the northwest-southwest-trending Sand Hills is visible in this near-vertical photograph. The rocky outcrops east of the sand dunes are part of the Chocolate Mountains. The dark, east-west-aligned feature is the All American Canal, which, along with connecting canals, carries water for irrigation into the Imperial Valley of southern California. A small section of the Colorado River and cultivated field patterns in both the United States and Mexico is discernible.
