This Envisat image features the city of Vancouver in the Canadian province of British Columbia. Vancouver Island is visible just off the southwestern British Columbia coast in the lower left. The snow-capped Coast Mountains visible northeast of Vancouver extend from southwestern Yukon through the Alaska Panhandle and virtually all of the Coast of British Columbia. The Frasier Plateau is visible just beyond the Coast Mountains.
The Cascade Mountains (lower right) extend from southern British Columbia through Washington and Oregon to Northern California. Also visible in the image (lower right) is the northern part of Washington, the contiguous U.S.’s most northwestern-state.
