  STS062-102-007 Appalachian Mountains; Chesapeake Bay; Delmarva Peninsula, U.S.A. March 1994
This panoramic southwest-looking view delineates between the white snow covered ridges and valleys of the Appalachian Mountains to the topographically lower Piedmont and coastal plains. The 180 mile (290 km) long Delmarva Peninsula is visible in the lower portion of the image. Immediately to the peninsula’s west (between the Delmarva Peninsula and the mainland) is the 200 mile (320 km) long Chesapeake Bay. Numerous sediment-laden rivers, including the Patuxent, Potomac, Rappahannock, York, and James, can be seen flowing into Chesapeake Bay. Near the bottom right of the image is Delaware Bay.
