Image Caption: STS059-089-084 Tule Lake and Lava Beds, California, U.S.A. April 1994
Tule Lake, a national wildlife refuge just south of the California-Oregon border, is visible to the left center in this near-vertical photograph. During World War II, Tule Lake was the site of a Japanese relocation camp. South of Tule Lake is snow-covered Lava Beds National Monument. It was in these lava beds that the Modoc Indians made their final stand against the United States Cavalry in 1873. Discernible west of Tule Lake are agricultural field patterns of drained, lower Klamath Lake.
