Today’s Image of the Day comes thanks to the NASA Earth Observatory and features a look at the Rocky Mountain Trench.
The Rocky Mountain Trench, also known as The Valley of a Thousand Peaks, stretches from Flathead Lake in Montana to the Liard River just south of British Columbia, Canada, spanning a total of 1,000 miles.
The trench separates the Canadian Rockies on the east and the Columbia Mountains on the west. It has a width that varies from 2 to 10 miles.
This image was captured by an astronaut on board the International Space Station.
