Geographic Region: USA-COLORADO

STS073-707-027 Denver, Colorado, U.S.A. October 1995
This apparent black and white photograph, generated from natural color film, shows snow-covered metropolitan Denver and little or no snow in the darker area north of Denver. Accentuated features of the snow cover include lakes and reservoirs (dark, irregular features); street grid patterns; and a line of steeply tilted rocks (darker, diagonal features to the west) that parallel the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. Obvious is the southwest-to-northeast pattern of the South Platte River through Denver.
