China - June 2nd, 2010

This image focuses on part of the Chinese province of Inner Mongolia, near the border with the nation Mongolia. The area appears mostly dry, although it becomes progressively greener as one moves eastward towards an area of hills and valleys.

A lake with a curved shoreline is visible in the upper left corner. Upon opening the full image, the Yellow River (Huang He) can be seen passing below the lake. The Yellow River, so named due to its yellow-tan color from the sediments it carries, is difficult to see in the thumbnail as it blends in with the dry, yellow-tan surrounding lands.
