Image Caption: S37-152-24 & S37-78-007 Pinacates volcanic range,northern Sonora
The last good photo of the Pinacates was taken during Gemini.
This volcanic range, the result of sort-of a leaky transform
fault (it is located just to the east of where the San Andreas
fault system enters the Gulf of California), is one of the most
heavily cratered regions on earth. The craters are volcanic ex-
plosion craters. The large pit to the right (north) on the field
is Crater Elegante, and is x km in diameter by y deep.
