  STS066-154-056 Atlanta, Georgia, U.S.A. November 1994
Rapidly developing Atlanta is featured in this synoptic, northwest-looking photograph, which depicts numerous transportation routes radiating from the downtown area. Visible are highly reflective Hartsfield-Atlanta International Airport south of the city and two lakes—irregular-shaped Lake Sidney Lanier to the northeast and smaller Carters Lake to the north. Immediately west of Carters Lake is a north-south-oriented valley between folded ridges (to the west) and the more massive mountains (to the east) of the Appalachian Mountains. Barely discernible north of metropolitan Atlanta is a railroad right-of-way that winds through the valleys of the Blue Ridge Mountains within the Chattahoochee National Forest.
