LOCATION Direction Photo #: STS066-158-102 Date: Nov. 1994
Geographic Region: USA-KENTUCKY

STS066-158-102 Western Kentucky, U.S.A. November 1994
Featured in this photograph of western Kentucky are three bodies of water--from west to east, the meandering Mississippi River with lighter sandbars in its main channel, the Ohio River, and Kentucky Lake. A small section of the Ohio River, which merges with the Mississippi River just beyond the scope of this photograph, is apparent (top left). Long, wide Kentucky Lake appears farthest east. The dendritic drainage pattern shows that most of the land between the Mississippi River and Kentucky Lake drains westward into the Mississippi River.
