This orthorectified image shows the Sierra de la Giganta, a mountain range of Baja California Sur state in northwestern Mexico. The range extends parallel to the coast of the Gulf of California, west of the town of Loreto. The Sierra de la Giganta is one of the landforms in the Peninsular Ranges, which extend 1500 km (900 miles) from Southern California to the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula.

Also visible is the large Bahía Concepción,  upper left quadrant, a bay on the east coast of the state of Baja California Sud. It is one of the largest bays in the state, between the Baja California Sud peninsula’s mainland and the rocky, barren Concepción Peninsula.
