  STS078-760-009 Potomac River, Virginia, USA June 1996 The junction of the borders of three states (Virginia, West Virginia, and Maryland) is located near the center of this color infrared picture. At this junction the smaller, northeasterly flowing Shenandoah River merges with the larger, southeasterly flowing Potomac River. The color infrared image (green vegetation portrayed as shades of red) helps to identify the forested and widely spaced, parallel mountain ridges (northeast-southwest trending) of the Appalachian Mountains.
