  STS028-097-085 Saint Elias Mountains, Alaska, U.S.A. August 1989
The northwest-southeast-oriented Saint Elias Mountains appear slightly inland from the coast and are the major landform in this photograph. This area of glaciated terrain lies immediately southeast of the large Malaspina Glacier (not discernible in this photograph). Visible are low stratus clouds off the coast, a light blue sediment plume at the mouth of the Alsek River, and a variety of medial moraines (darker lines created by the debris carried by glaciers as they move through the valleys). Apparent in the photograph are several large, U-shaped valleys at the top and Cape Fairweather, the protrusion of land along the right edge.
