  STS059-085-097 Canyon Ferry Lake, Big Belt Mountains, Elkhorn Mountains, Montana, U.S.A. April 1994
Many rugged, snow-covered ranges within the Rocky Mountains of Montana are visible in this south-southwest-looking, low-oblique photograph. Discernible are Canyon Ferry Lake; to its east, the northwest-southeast-trending Big Belt Mountains; and still farther east, the Little Belt Mountains. The Elkhorn Mountains lie west of Canyon Ferry Lake, south of which is the northern portion of the Madison Range. West of the Madison Range are the Tobacco Root Mountains, the Pioneer Mountains, and to the northwest the Anaconda Range. Near the bottom right of the photograph is the southern extension of the Lewis and Clark Range.
