Image Caption: STS058-080-035 Richland Creek Reservoir, Texas, U.S.A. October 1993
Two large reservoirs dominate this photograph of low, rolling hills near Corsicana--Y-shaped Richland Creek Reservoir southeast of Corsicana and, to its northeast, elongated Cedar Creek Reservoir between Corsicana and Athens--with muddy sediment (lighter water) apparent in the upper reaches of both. Barely discernible is a section of the Trinity River that flows southward between the two reservoirs. Corsicana lies at the intersection of north-south-oriented Interstate Highway 45 and Texas Highway 31 (lower left corner). Texas Highway 31 connects Corsicana and Athens (near the top center). Apparent south of Richland Creek Reservoir are a lignite strip mine operation and a small, dark lake.
