Image Caption: STS026-40-65 Lake Uru Uru/Alachas Mountains This scene gives a closer
view of Lake Uru Uru and the stream connecting to Lake Poopo at the
bottom center of the view. The Alachas Mountains can be seen covering
most of the right portion of the photograph. The city of Oruro,
Bolivia (1), is barely visible under the shadow of a cloud. Oruro,
with a population in excess of 125 000, sits at an altitude of 3700
meters and is a leading center for silver, copper, and tin mining in
the region.
