Image Caption: STS068-247-085 Tyler, Texas, U.S.A. October 1994
The northeast Texas city of Tyler is situated on rolling, sandy hills with substantial stands of pine trees. Several highways are discernible--east-west Interstate Highway 20 approximately 7 miles (10 kilometers) north of downtown; northwest-southeast U.S. Highway 69 and northeast-southwest Texas Highway 31 that pass through Tyler; and segments of a bypass that encircles the city. Three lakes are apparent--to the southeast, Lake Tyler and smaller Lake Tyler East and farther west, large, dark Lake Palestine with Texas Highway 155 crossing the lake near its southern end.
