Four Corners, Southwest United States
Jacques Descloitres, MODIS Land Rapid Response Team
This MODIS true-color image is centered on the Four Corners region in the Southwest United States. Recognizable features include the forest-covered Rocky Mountains, which still have snow-covered peaks, running through Colorado and into New Mexico. To the west of Colorado is Utah, where the Great Salt Lake can be seen at the upper left. The Colorado Plateau, with its salmon-colored rocks, extends south from Utah into Arizona. The Grand Canyon of the Colorado River cuts westward through the mountains in northern Arizona.
