Mexico - July 14th, 2011

This image of northern Mexico shows the beginning of the Sierra Madre Oriental (upper right quadrant), approximately 50 kilometers from the United States border. The mountain range starts at the Big Bend region of the border with the U.S. state of Texas and continues 1,350 kilometers until reaching Cofre de Perote, one of the major peaks of the Cordillera Neovolcánica.

The rest of the image is dominated by the Mexican altiplano, stretching from the United States border to the Cordillera Neovolcánica and occupying the vast expanse of land between the eastern and western Sierra Madre ranges.
