Image Caption: STS059-234-069 Santa Barbara, Goleta, and Santa Ynez Mountains, California, U.S.A. April 1994
The coastal resort cities of Santa Barbara and Goleta are barely discernible in this near-vertical photograph. North of Santa Barbara and Goleta, paralleling the coast, lie the east-west-trending, forested Santa Ynez Mountains, north of which lies Lake Cachuma. Farther north, the San Rafael Mountains are partially obscured by clouds. Santa Barbara, known for its prevalent Spanish architecture, has many recreational facilities and electronic, aerospace, oil, and orchid industries. The Santa Barbara Channel is captured in the upper half of the photograph.
