  STS058-080-035 Richland Creek Reservoir, Texas, U.S.A. October 1993
Two large reservoirs dominate this photograph of low, rolling hills near Corsicana—Y-shaped Richland Creek Reservoir southeast of Corsicana and, to its northeast, elongated Cedar Creek Reservoir between Corsicana and Athens—with muddy sediment (lighter water) apparent in the upper reaches of both. Barely discernible is a section of the Trinity River that flows southward between the two reservoirs. Corsicana lies at the intersection of north-south-oriented Interstate Highway 45 and Texas Highway 31 (lower left corner). Texas Highway 31 connects Corsicana and Athens (near the top center). Apparent south of Richland Creek Reservoir are a lignite strip mine operation and a small, dark lake.
