  STS61A-33-0048 Lake Champlain and Green Mountains, Vermont, U.S.A. November 1985
The forested Green Mountains, which extend from southwestern Quebec in Canada (right center) southward into northwest Massachusetts, are featured in this northwest-looking, low-oblique photograph. Containing some of the oldest rocks in North America; low, rounded peaks; fertile valleys; and many small streams, the Green Mountains are a vacation paradise with year-round resorts and recreational areas. Lake Champlain, 125 miles (201 kilometers) long and part of the Vermont-New York border, separates Vermont from the rugged Adirondack Mountains (upper left). Visible are three bodies of water—the Richelieu River, which drains Lake Champlain (right of upper center); large Lake Memphremagog, 30 miles (48 kilometers) long east of the Green Mountains (left center), which drains northward into the Saint Francis River in southern Quebec; and the Connecticut River, which separates Vermont and New Hampshire (bottom of photograph), east of which are the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
