STS068-167-00Y East-Central Arkansas, U.S.A. October 1994 This low-oblique, northeast-looking photograph, featuring east-central Arkansas, is centered on the Pine Bluff area (slightly left of center). The Arkansas River meanders from Little Rock (left middle edge) to its confluence with the Mississippi River (upper right edge). The darker portion of the photograph shows a wooded terrain; the upper third shows the cultivated floodplain of the Mississippi River. The narrow, dark corridor (top of photograph) is the densely vegetated floodplain of the White River, which has channels that empty into both the Mississippi River and the Arkansas River. The thin, light features that cut through forests are highways or railroad rights-of-way.
