  STS079-812-087 Grenada and Enid Lakes, Mississippi September, 1996
The larger of the two lakes shown in this scene, Grenada Lake shown in sun glint, and the smaller Enid Lake are visible in the east-looking low-oblique view. Both lakes are located in a cotton growing and timber-producing region of central Mississippi. Grenada Lake is fed by the Yalobusha and Skuna Rivers and has nearly 90380 acres (36604 hectares) of land and water combined for recreational purposes. The dams for both lakes control flooding, especially downstream for the Tallahatchie River floodplain, which is visible along the lower portion of the image. The dams of both lakes also provide hydroelectric power for the growing industrial base in the region.
