Image Caption: STS062-089-014 Sutter Buttes and Sacramento Valley, California, U.S.A. March 1994
This near-vertical photograph features Sutter Buttes [2132 feet (605 meters)] with the Sacramento River to the west, the Feather River to the east, and Yuba City and Marysville east-southeast at the junction of the Feather and Yuba Rivers. The Yuba River Valley, extending eastward into the foothills of the northern Sierra Nevada Mountains, lies north of the long runways of Beale Air Force Base. Multicolored, rectangular agricultural patterns are visible throughout the Sacramento Valley.
