Image Caption: STS068-232-043 Northern Louisiana, U.S.A. October 1994
Interstate Highway 20 appears as a thin line connecting Arcadia in the west to Tallulah in the east in this east-looking, synoptic photograph of northern Louisiana. Visible north of Interstate Highway 20 are dark, irregular-shaped Lake Claiborne and Bayou d'Arbonne Lake farther east. Only the general locations of Ruston and Monroe, two of the larger cities in northern Louisiana, can be discerned. The dark greens of the rolling hills, known locally as the Prairie Complex, contrast dramatically with the lighter colors of the flat, intensely cultivated western Mississippi River floodplain. A single smoke plume appears south of Interstate Highway 20.
