Image Caption: STS066-088-073 Bryan and College Station, Texas, U.S.A. November 1994
Discernible in this photograph are some of the grid street patterns for College Station and Bryan, which are connected by Texas Highway 6. The tan swath of land west of these two towns is the floodplain of the Brazos River; the actual stream channel can be identified in only a few places (top and bottom of the photograph). The lighter colors show grass-covered plains and rolling hills; darker hardwood woodlands, found in stream bottoms or small valleys, are scattered throughout. Gibbons Creek is the small, irregular reservoir southeast of College Station.
