Georgia - September 6th, 2009

The foothills of the Greater Caucasus Mountains in the upper part of this orthorectified image slope down into plains where Kutaisi (near left edge), Georgia’s second largest city and the capital of the western region of Imereti, is located.

Continuining southward, the Lesser Caucasus Range occupies most of the lower half of the image. It runs parallel to the Greater Caucasus, at a distance averaging about 100 km (60 mi) south. The total length of the Lesser Caucasus is about 600 km.
