STS028-083-057 Baranof Island and Chatham Strait, Alaska, U.S.A. August 1989
Parts of several heavily forested islands that constitute the Alaskan panhandle are visible in this photograph. Snowcapped peaks and ridge lines appear in some of the higher elevations of southward-pointing Baranof Island. Kuiu Island and Kupreanof Island are covered by clouds. Frederick Sound extends eastward from north-south-oriented Chatham Strait, which borders the eastern shore of Baranof Island. Both the sound and the strait are part of the Inside Passage, a sheltered waterway that operates from Seattle, Washington, to Skagway, Alaska. A section of Stephens Passage, an alternate route of the Inside Passage, is visible along the eastern coast of Admiralty Island.
