Image Caption: STS064-110-091 Pyramid Lake, Nevada, U.S.A. September 1994
Pyramid Lake, an elevated saline lake [3788 feet (1155 meters) above sea level] roughly 25 miles (40 kilometers) long, lies approximately 25 miles (40 kilometers) northeast of Reno, Nevada. Periodically, the intermittently flowing Truckee River and Canal enter the lake from the south to provide fresh water. The mountains east and west of the lake average 6000 feet (1830 meters) in elevation, with several peaks exceeding 8000 feet (2440 meters). Long, linear Winnemucca Lake (a dry lake) is visible along the eastern side of the photograph.
