  STS073-704-092 Arkansas River and Dodge City, Kansas, U.S.A. October 1995
The large, rectangular and center-pivot irrigated agricultural fields along the Arkansas River in western Kansas are featured in this north-looking, slightly low-oblique photograph. Dodge City, a distribution center in this wheat and livestock area, also produces agricultural implements and supplies. Laid out in 1872 near Fort Dodge (left center) on the old Santa Fe Trail, Dodge City soon flourished as the Santa Fe railhead and became a wild and rowdy cow town. Wyatt Earp and Bat Masterson were among its famous residents. The small city of Kinsley (barely discernible) lies northeast of Dodge City.
