  STS068-257-039 Colorado Piedmont Area, Colorado, U.S.A. October 1994
Two distinctive landforms are apparent in this southwest-looking photograph--the Colorado Piedmont and the snow-covered higher elevations of the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. The relatively flat Piedmont extends from just south of greater Denver (middle left edge of the photograph) to north of Fort Collins, sloping gradually west to east. The South Platte River and some of its tributaries flow north through the Denver area and turn east-northeast across northeastern Colorado, displaying a fairly broad floodplain (near bottom center). Numerous cultivated field patterns show widespread dry land farming throughout the region.
