Image Caption:
Northern California (S31-78-OAZ). The high altitude of the STS-
31 mission allowed the astronauts to photograph Mt. Shasta in
northern California (north of center). From west to east (left
to right) are the folded rocks of the California coastal Ranges,
the Central Valley agricultural region, and the Sierra Nevada
Mountains. Deeply incised Yosemite Valley is in the lower right
of the photograph. This scene was taken with the Hasselblad cam-
era equipped with the 250 mm lens.
