Image Caption: STS073-702-014 Dolores River and Canyon, Colorado, U.S.A. October 1995
Drainage patterns, mesas, and mountains are the prominent landforms in the semiarid environment of extreme southwest Colorado. Apparent are the Dolores River exiting southwest of the mountains and gradually making a U-turn to the northwest. Visible are Sleeping Ute Mountains and Ute Peak [5914 feet (1803 meters) above sea level] (upper right corner) and Mesa Verde National Park, the eroded mesa (top of photograph). Cortez (not discernible) lies near the small, dark, V-shaped reservoir (near top center).
