  STS068-167-00N North-Central Kansas, U.S.A. October 1994
The agricultural lands of north-central Kansas are discernible in this northeast-looking, low-oblique photograph. The Smoky Hill River extends eastward through Salina, with its long north-south airport runway, to near Junction City and the Milford Reservoir where it joins the southeast-flowing Republican River to become the Kansas River, which continues a generally eastward path. Discernible are Tuttle Creek Reservoir east-northeast of Milford Reservoir and Manhattan (barely discernible) to its south.
