STS068-244-016 Yuba City and Sutter Buttes, California, U.S.A. October 1994
The agricultural fields near Yuba City and Sutter Buttes within the Sacramento Valley are captured in this low-oblique, east-looking photograph. The volcanic peaks of Sutter Buttes [2132 feet (605 meters)] dominate the lower Sacramento Valley. Yuba City, founded in 1849 during the great California Gold Rush, is located on the Feather River. Visible east of Yuba City and the small city of Marysville are the large runways of Beale Air Force Base. Irrigation canals west of Yuba City extend north past Sutter Buttes. The area supports agricultural and dairy farming and stock raising.
