Image Caption:
STS045-152-192: Rocky Mountain Front Range A view southwestward
across the Rocky Mountains in northern Montana and southern
Alberta. Glacier National Park is in the center of the snow-
covered Front Range. Beyond and to the left, Flathead Lake, sur-
rounded by dark forest, can barely be made out within the light-
colored valley. The view extends across the Columbia River Basin
in Oregon to the eastern Cascades. Fallow wheat land on the
northern High Plains in the foreground awaits the spring.
