USA and Mexico – January 17th, 2013

Snow covers mountain ranges in southwestern USA, including the Sierra Nevada Mountains, which border the San Joaquin Valley, in southern California (upper left quadrant). The snow contrasts with the more arid land between ranges and in Mexico (lower half of image). Visible in the snow-free areas are bodies of waters such as the three-pronged Lake Mead (above center), in Arizona and Nevada, Lake Powell, surrounded by snow near the top edge, in Arizona and Utah, and the Salton Sea, in California near the Mexican border and northwest of the Gulf of California.
