  STS073-744-058 Santa Rosa Mountains, Southern California, U.S.A. October 1995
A small section of the Santa Rosa Mountains between San Diego and the Salton Sea is featured in this color infrared, west-looking, low-oblique photograph. The color infrared film displays the sparsely vegetated eastern slopes, a small cluster of cultivated field patterns near the base of the eastern flank, and some forested areas in the higher elevations. Ridge lines vary between 4000 feet (1220 meters) and 6000 feet (1830 meters) above sea level. Discernible are a small lake to the west and several well defined linear fault valleys throughout the mountains.
