NASA Coolness: Himalayan Mountains: Amazing NASA Desktop Wallpaper

NASA Coolness: Himalayan Mountains
Amazing NASA Desktop Wallpaper

This is a crazy-stunning-cool photo from NASA of the Himalayan mountains that was taken on April 12, 2001. The NASA description reads:

"Soaring, snow-capped peaks and ridges of the eastern Himalaya Mountains create an irregular white-on-red patchwork between major rivers in southwestern China. The Himalayas are made up of three parallel mountain ranges that together extend more than 2,900 Kilometers."

If you click on the first image below it will give you an image that is 1600 x 1600 pixels. For those of you who have the amazing new Apple 27inch iMac I prepared a higher resolution version which is 2560 x 1440.
