Image Caption: STS060-072-044 Tularosa Valley, New Mexico, U.S.A. February 1994
Despite a few wispy clouds over the Tularosa Valley (center of photograph) in south-central New Mexico, numerous features are recognizable in this west-looking photograph. Visible are (from top to bottom) a segment of the Rio Grande and Elephant Butte Reservoir; the linear San Andres Mountains; White Sands National Monument; a dark, ribbonlike lava flow; and the Sacramento, Sierra Blanca, and Capitan Mountains with drainage patterns radiating eastward. Part of the Space Shuttle is apparent in the lower left corner.
