Image Caption: STS068-173-124 Lassen Peak Volcano and Lake Almanor, California, U.S.A. October 1994
This synoptic, low-oblique, northeast-looking photograph captures the timber-covered mountains of the extreme southern Cascades. Snowcapped Lassen Peak, a stratovolcano, is visible north-northwest of dark blue Lake Almanor. Grass- and scrub-covered alluvial fans, with red soil on some of the upper slopes, descend west of the Cascades to the Sacramento Valley. The Sacramento River traverses Red Bluff west of the lake.
