Image Caption: STS066-126-097 Pensacola, Florida, U.S.A. November 1994
Featured in this photograph is Pensacola, the largest city in the western Florida panhandle (center). Discernible are a light, linear highway loop that encircles the city; Interstate Highway 10, the major east-west-oriented highway through the region; two large airports with highly reflective, intersecting runways--Pensacola Naval Air Station (south) and Pensacola Regional Airport (east of the city); and a single, north-south-aligned runway (near right margin). The vegetated floodplain of the Escambia River that flows into Escambia Bay (east side of city) and its delta are apparent (upper center). This bay extends southward into Pensacola Bay. Further west the Perdido River, which forms the boundary between western Florida and Alabama, flows into Perdido Bay. Causeway bridges connect Pensacola with a peninsula and the sandy beaches of Santa Rosa Island, one of many barrier islands that line the coastal areas of the northern Gulf of Mexico and help to create the Intracoastal Waterway.
