Philippines - May 18th, 2011

This image shows central to northern Luzon, the largest island in the Philippines. The northern part of the island contains the large mountain range, the Cordillera Central.

To the east of the Cordillera Central is the large Cagayan Valley. To the east of the valley rises the Sierra Madre mountain range, easily the longest range in the country.

The Lingayen Gulf can be observed on the west side of the island in the lower left quadrant. It is an extension of the South China Sea, stretching 56 km. It sits between the Zambales Mountains and the Cordillera Central.
