Sacramento is the capital of the state of California in the USA. The city is located along the Sacramento River and just south of the American River’s confluence in California’s expansive Central Valley.

To the east of the Central Valley is the Sierra Nevada mountain range. The change in elevation from 25 feet (8 meters) above mean sea level in the valley around Sacramento to around 6000 feet (about 1830 meters) at the right edge can be observed in this orthorectified image.
