  STS068-174-163 Cimarron River and South Canadian River, Oklahoma, U.S.A. October 1994
This panoramic, low-oblique, southwest-looking photograph shows the high plains of northwestern Oklahoma with the Cimarron River (bottom of photograph); the agricultural field patterns in the North Canadian River Valley; and the curved loops of the South Canadian River (upper left). Visible are Fort Supply Lake (center) in the valley of the Wolf River, which joins the North Canadian River north of the lake, and the small city of Woodward (barely discernible) to the southeast, which is a market center for the surrounding livestock, farm, and dairy region. Woodward also serves as the headquarters for many gas and oil companies. Of the numerous pivot irrigation field patterns (right center to upper center), many appear in the Wolf River Valley near the Oklahoma-Texas border.
