The Steamboat Hills in the center of the photo is an area of geothermal development in the Steamboat Springs volcanic field of western Nevada. The small light spot just right of the summit of the central hill is a steam plume from a geothermal well. Steamboat Springs lies in a structural trough in the eastern Sierra Nevada between the Virginia Range on the east and the western Carson Range in the background of the photo.
