  STS078-737-014 Lake Coipasa, Bolivia June 1996
The most obvious landform in this southwest looking view of the Altiplano in southwest Bolivia is the highly reflective salt flat, Salar de Coipasa (upper left). There is a dendritic drainage pattern that connects to intermittently flowing stream channels north of the Salar de Coipasa. The darker, semi-circular features are volcanoes that generally trend north-south. The maximum elevation of the volcano located within Salar de Coipasa is 16149 feet (4922 meters) above sea level, while the elevation of the dry lake is 11985 feet (3653 meters). A series of paralleling folded mountains are visible near the bottom of the image.
