  STS066-158-095 Mississippi River Floodplain, Arkansas, U.S.A. November 1994
The meandering Mississippi River with large white sandbars and a broad floodplain are featured in this south-looking photograph of the Mississippi River Valley. Numerous cultivated field patterns confirm that this fertile floodplain is a region of extensive agriculture. Two meandering rivers merge with the Mississippi River from the west—the broad Arkansas River and the narrow White River, which seems to have developed its own floodplain of dark forested land on either side. A narrow band of clouds overhangs to the west.
