STS039-085-033 North Dallas, Texas, U.S.A. May 1991
The northern two-thirds of Dallas and such peripheral cities as Richardson, Plano, Allen, and McKinney to the north are featured in this near-vertical photograph of a region experiencing tremendous population growth. Visible are the central business district of downtown Dallas (west of center); the runways of Dallas Love Field (northwest of downtown); and north-south U.S. Highway 75, the Central Expressway. Three large reservoirs and their respective dams are apparent--Garza Little Elm Reservoir northwest of Dallas, Lavon Reservoir to the northeast, and Lake Ray Hubbard to the east. Visible are White Rock Creek, a tributary of the Trinity River, meandering southward through central Dallas; the street pattern of most of the surrounding cities; and cultivated (angular) agricultural fields north of the cities.
