  STS062-152-246 Waco and Killeen, Texas, U.S.A. March 1994
Cities, connecting highways, large reservoirs, and diverse landscapes are featured in this synoptic photograph of central Texas. Urban areas are not clearly discernible; however, lighter colors denote the locations and sizes of various cities. Interstate Highway 35 connects from north to south Waco, Temple, and Belton, (right side of photograph). Circling clockwise to the northwest from Belton are Killeen with Fort Hood to its north and west, Copperas Cove, Lampasas, and Gatesville. Viewing from north to south are several reservoirs--the southern end of Lake Whitney, Lake Waco, Belton Lake, and Stillhouse Hollow Lake. Interstate Highway 35 is roughly the dividing line between the relatively flat terrain of the Grand Prairie to the east and the hills and uplifted plateaus, such as the Comanche Plateau and the Lampasas Cut Plains, to the west.
