Cucharas Valley from Space

This image from the International Space Station was captured October 26, 2007 at 10:30am MDT from an altitude of 209 statute miles. The view of the Cucharas Valley clearly shows the accessibility to Trinchera Peak as well as West Spanish Peak.

A section of FR 415 from Cucharas Pass to Cordova Pass is invisible here due to being on the backside of the mountain from this angle. Name places and elevations taken from USGS 7.5 minute quad topo maps.
