Gateway to the Hudson Highlands

July 27, 2003
Breakneck Ridge and Storm King Mountain form the northern gateway to the famed Hudson Highlands of Southern New York State, 60 miles (97 km) north of New York City. This Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) false-color image, captured September 18, 2000, looks south towards the mountains that overlook the Hudson River. Vegetated surfaces appear red, urban areas appear light blue, and water bodies appear dark grey or black. Digital Elevation Model data for topography were overlain to provide this 3-dimensional perspective of the terrain.
