  STS073-726-075 Owens River Valley and Central Mojave Desert, California U.S.A. October 1995
This low-oblique, north-looking photograph features the Owens River Valley, the north-central Mojave Desert, Mono Lake, and Walker Lake (Nevada). The fault valley is bordered on the west by the massive Sierra Nevada Mountains and on the east by a series of lower mountain ranges (part of the basin range region). The generally north-south-trending Kern River fault traverses the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Visible are several dry lakes (Owens Lake, the large, white feature in the upper center of the photograph; Searles Lake to the south; Rodgers Dry Lake to the southwest; and Harper Lake to the southeast), isolated low mountains, flat plains, and valleys. The arc of the intermittently flowing Mojave River is apparent near the bottom of the photograph.
