The Sacramento Valley stretches between the Coastal Mountains (left) and the Cascade Mountains (right) in California, USA.

Here, the Coastal Mountains include the peak known as Pence Mountain, a summit in Colusa County that climbs to 1,857 feet (566.01 meters) above sea level.

The Cascades, on the other hand, include a peak called Promontory Point, a summit in Tehama County that reachesĀ  3,589 feet (1,093.93 meters) above sea level.

A small, seemingly out-of-place peak can also be seen in the middle of the valley, at the bottom of thisĀ  orthorectified image. These are the Twin Peaks, comprised of North Butte and South Butte, part of the Sutter Buttes.
