Image Caption: STS073-744-046 Santa Barbara, California, U.S.A. November 1995
The low Santa Ynez Mountains, a linear concentration of reds (an indication of dense vegetation), parallel this part of the California coastline. The higher elevations of the San Rafael Mountains farther north reflect more dense vegetation than some of the lower elevation valley areas. The east-west-trending white line is a road that follows the main ridgeline of the Santa Ynez Mountains. Lake Cachuma is the black irregular feature near the western edge of the photograph. Although the infrastructure for Santa Barbara is not discernible, the city and Goleta are included in this photograph. The highly reflective, linear feature to the northeast is part of a dry lakebed along a narrow valley.
