  STS058-085-072 Lake Almanor and Lassen Peak Volcano, California, U.S.A. October 1993
This low-oblique, northwest-looking photograph features the dark blue waters of Lake Almanor. Impounded at the Big Meadows Dam across the north fork of the Feather River, Lake Almanor supplies water power to many industries and communities in the region. Visible near the top left of the photograph is the snowcapped stratovolcano Lassen Peak, which last erupted in 1915. Clear-cutting timber patterns appear as small rectangles in both Lassen National Forest northwest of Lake Almanor and Plumas National Forest to the south. Two small reservoirs--Mount Meadows Reservoir and Butte Valley Reservoir--are visible east and north, respectively, of Lake Almanor. The extreme western portion of Eagle Lake is visible near the top right of the photograph.
