STS073-725-024 Missouri River, Missouri, U.S.A. October 1995
The Missouri River traverses generally eastward across Missouri in this west-looking, low-oblique photograph. The river's floodplain reaches its widest point between Lexington and De Witt (neither discernible). Some remnants of the floods of 1993 remain; however, this area is rich in agriculture and livestock as evidenced by numerous small agricultural fields on either side of the river that were not visible immediately after the floods.
