LOCATION Direction Photo #: STS066-88-93 Date: Nov. 1994
Geographic Region: USA-ARIZONA

STS066-088-093 Lake Havasu, Arizona, U.S.A. November 1994
The Colorado River makes a dramatic 90-degree turn to the southwest approximately 20 miles (30 kilometers) south of the Lake Havasu City area, which can be located by its proximity to the large peninsula in Lake Havasu (the long, dark feature in the center of the photograph). Parker Dam is not discernible; however, its impact is apparent through the expanse of water retained behind the dam. This section of the Colorado River forms the boundary between Arizona and California. Local mountain ranges include the Whipple Mountains and Sacramento Mountains along the western (California) side of the photograph and the Mohave Mountains with Crossman Peak [5100 feet (1555 meters) above sea level] immediately east of Lake Havasu City in Arizona.
