  NASA6-709-007 Calabria, Italy Fall/Winter 1997
The elongated peninsula at the southern end of mainland Italy, commonly known as the toe (of the boot) of Italy, shows a mountainous spine that traverses the peninsula from northeast to southwest. The darker area inland from the coast is the rugged Calabrian Mountains where some peaks exceed 5000 feet (1542 meters) above sea level. This forested region is also known as the Silan uplands where a variety of lakes, meadows, and elevated pastures are intermixed with the wooded areas. The drainage pattern observed around the geologic structure (darker feature-bottom center) has the characteristics of an old, severely eroded, extinct volcano.
