Image Caption: NASA7-723-048 Big Belt Mountains, Montana Spring, 1998
Traversing the image from near the bottom center to almost the upper right center, the northwest/southeast trending Big Belt Mountains can be seen in this southeast-looking low-oblique view. The Big Belt Mountains are a part of the Rocky Mountains. These mountains are forested and very rugged with numerous canyons. Mount Edith at 9504 feet (2899 meters) is the highest peak in the mountain range and is located slightly above the center of the image. West of the Big Belt Mountains is the Upper Missouri River Valley and Canyon Ferry Lake. To the west of Canyon Ferry Lake are the Elkhorn Mountains. Barely discernible midway between the bottom center and the right center of the image is the capitol city of Montana, Helena. Referred to as "The Queen City of the Rockies", Helena is located at the southern end of the Helena Valley approximately 20 miles (32 km) west of the northern part of Canyon Ferry Lake.
