The blurb blow came from Rednova.com on 12/15/03.
Rugged mountains along the spine of Baja California, the deep blue water
of the Gulf of California (also known as the Sea of Cortez), and the deserts
ofnorthwestern Mexico and southern California highlight this photograph.
This southerly view provides an excellent panorama extending from the Salton
Sea in the Imperial Valley of southern California almost to the southern tip of
Baja California.Human imprint on this landscape is primarily found along the
rivers and their floodplains, where intensive irrigated agriculture exists.
The Colorado River, with its cultivated field patterns (darker areas), can be seen
to flow from the north toward the southwest and finally to empty into the broad delta
at the center of the photograph and to enter the northern end of the Gulf of California.
