  STS078-734-54 St. Joseph, Missouri, USA June 1996
Although this image shows a landscape that is intensively cultivated, the wooded escarpment (darker fringe of land along both sides of the floodplain) helps to frame the boundary of the floodplain of the Missouri River. Some of the gridded street pattern of St. Joseph is visible along the east bank of the Missouri River. The major highways in the St. Joseph area can be traced across the cultivated plain, especially Interstate Highways 29 and 229 and U. S. Highway 36. It is interesting to note that Rosecrans Memorial Airport, located due west of St. Joseph and west of the main channel of the Missouri River, is located in the state of Missouri. The small city of Atchison, Kansas is barely visible near the southwest edge of the picture along the west bank of the Missouri River.
