  STS068-246-100 Allier River, Vichy, France October, 1994
The Allier River can be seen entering the scene midway between the bottom center and bottom left (south). The river traverses the scene in a generally northerly direction past the city of Vichy and exits the scene at the top center (north). The Allier River, navigable for a good portion of its length, rises in the Cevennes Mountains of southeastern France. The city of Vichy, located on the east bank of the Allier River, is located midway between the bottom center and center of the image. Vichy is a noted spa and health resort in Europe. Many of the thermal alkaline springs scattered throughout the city have been in use since Roman times. Vichy water and salts are exported in large quantities to countries all over the world.
