Mexico - December 31st, 2010

The irregularly shaped Miguel Alemán Lake appears dark green on the left side of this APM image. It is located in the Papaloapan Region of northern Oaxaca, Mexico. It was formed by the Miguel Alemán Dam, and is connected by a channel to the reservoir of the Cerro de Oro Dam.

Part of the Sierra Madre Oriental Range can be seen by the lake. The Papaloapan River rises in the Sierra Madre Oriental on the border between the states of Veracruz and Oaxaca. It can be seen across the upper right quadrant, meandering for 122 km in a northeasterly direction through the coastal plain.
