Image Caption:
S36-152-165: Isabela, Galpagos Of note in this photo are the
slopes of the volcanoes. This region is much greener than previ-
ous shots, even one taken even one year ago on STS-27. The vege-
tation is becoming established on older volcanic flows . . . it
is somewhat flow-specific. Younger, dark flows are still free of
plant life.
