Canada - February 1st, 2011

This orthorectified image shows several lakes in the southern Coast Mountains of Canada. The one in the upper right corner is Harrison Lake, the largest lake in that mountain range, at about 250 square kilometres in area.

East of the lake are the Lillooet Ranges while to the west are the Douglas Ranges. The lake is the last of a series of large north-south glacial valleys tributary to the Fraser River along its north bank east of Vancouver, British Columbia. The river can be seen crossing the lower part of the image.
