Many lakes can be seen by the eastern flanks of the Kuskokwim Mountains in this orthorectified image. This range of mountains is located in the Yukon-Koyukuk Census Area, Alaska, USA. The mountain range is about 400 km (250 miles) long from northeast to southwest and about 80 km (50 miles) wide. The range takes its name from the Kuskokwim River, which flows through the mountains.

From top to bottom, the largest lakes are Chikuminuk Lake, Lake Chauekuktuli, Nuyakuk Lake, Lake Kulik, Lake Beverley and Lake Nerka. Upon opening the full image, Lake Aleknagik and Lake Nunavaugaluk can also be seen south of Lake Nerka.

Situated in a valley away from the other bodies of water is Togiak Lake, bottom center, a 13-mile-long (21 km) lake that extends southwest from the mouth of Izavieknik River, 75 miles (121 km) northeast of Goodnews Bay.
