  STS078-760-008 Shenandoah River Valley, Virginia, USA June 1996
The northeast-southwest trending Shenandoah Valley, located in northern Virginia, is clearly visible in this color infrared image (red colors represent green vegetation). The two dramatically meandering rivers, North Fork and South Fork of the Shenandoah River (dark lines), merge into one channel at Front Royal (left middle). The location of Winchester is a barely discernible cluster of light colored features near the northeast corner of the picture. The very thin, light-colored lines that cross the folded Appalachian Mountains near the bottom of the picture are power line right-of-ways. Some of the parallel, heavily wooded mountain ridges of the Appalachians in the northwest quadrant are located in West Virginia.
