Image Caption: STS068-249-036 Billings, Yellowstone River, and Pryor Mountains, Montana, U.S.A. October 1994
Billings, situated on the Yellowstone River in a valley surrounded by seven mountain ranges, is barely discernible in this south-southwest-looking, low-oblique photograph. The city is a trade and manufacturing center for the surrounding region and a shipping point for livestock, poultry, and wool. Oil refining, sugar refining, meat packing, and flour milling are the city's major industries. The eastern end of snow-covered Beartooth Plateau is visible in the top right of the photograph. Apparent along the bottom left is part of Yellowtail Dam on Bighorn Lake. West of the lake are the snowcapped peaks of the Pryor Mountains, the northern extension of the higher Bighorn Mountains (not discernible) further south in Wyoming. Irrigated fields in the Bighorn River Valley in Wyoming are visible.
