Details for: Nevada, Sierra
The large snow-covered massif near the center of this NASA Space Shuttle image (with north to the upper left) is the Sierra Nevada volcanic complex. The complex covers an area of about 225 sq km astride the Chile-Argentina border and includes at least a dozen volcanic vents with associated lava flows. Two large Pleistocene calderas lie south of Sierra Nevada, the 22-km-wide Wheelright caldera (part of which is visible at the lower left) and Escondida at the bottom center, with a lake on its caldera floor.
