  STS068-247-085 Tyler, Texas, U.S.A. October 1994
The northeast Texas city of Tyler is situated on rolling, sandy hills with substantial stands of pine trees. Several highways are discernible—east-west Interstate Highway 20 approximately 7 miles (10 kilometers) north of downtown; northwest-southeast U.S. Highway 69 and northeast-southwest Texas Highway 31 that pass through Tyler; and segments of a bypass that encircles the city. Three lakes are apparent—to the southeast, Lake Tyler and smaller Lake Tyler East and farther west, large, dark Lake Palestine with Texas Highway 155 crossing the lake near its southern end.
