Image Caption: North and south Forks of the Shenandoah River.

Orient with the tuning fork away from the viewer (sunglint is always south of the spacecraft at this latitude). Then the South Fork (left) and the North Fork (right) of the Shenandoah meet in the foreground; Front Royal, Virginia is just to the left of the combined rivers at the junction. Massanutten Mountain, covered by reddish-brown fallen leaves of the George Washington National Forest, separates the river forks.
