  STS062-104-029 Appalachian Mountains, Shenandoah Valley, Virginia, U.S.A. March 1994
Snow covers the valleys and lower ridges of the Appalachian Mountains in this near-nadir view. The city of Harrisonburg is barely visible as a dark smudge in the valley midway between the lower right and right center of the image. The Blue Ridge Mountains extend from the upper left (northeast) to near center right(southwest) of the image. Snow covers the agricultural fields of the Shenandoah River Valley; the meandering river contrasts with the snow at bottom center. Shenandoah National Park, a popular East Coast recreational destination, is in the heavily forested Blue Ridge Mountains. The linear ridges of the Allegheny Mountains in the state of West Virginia are visible at lower left of the image. Maximum elevations for some peaks in this area exceed 4,000 feet (1,220 meters).
