Some content in RAW images lost when editing

I don't think this is camera or software-specific, but perhaps someone here can answer my question. I just noticed that a photo I shot in RAW is being cropped by the editor (Photoshop Elements). In this instance, I took the photo in Yosemite National Park, and Half Dome was in the top left corner of the picture. Here's what that segment of the photo looks like when the RAW file is rendered in a viewer:

It' s meant to be at the edge of the photo. But when I open the photo in Photoshop Elements (or look at a JPG rendering), I get this:

I suspect that this has been happening all along, but I never noticed it before because I wasn't interested in anything at the edges. Can someone explain why this happens? Is there a way to edit (and maybe this question is software-specific) the original content of the RAW file?
