Image Caption: STS068-273-039 Crescent City and Smith River, California, U.S.A. October 1994
This near-vertical photograph shows the Smith River winding across a small coastal plain before emptying into the Pacific Ocean. Some clear-cutting is visible in the forested Klamath Mountains east of the Pacific Ocean. Along the coast and south of the Smith River mouth is Lake Earl. To the lake's south lie Point Saint George and to the southeast Crescent City. The green forested areas east and south of Crescent City are parts of Redwood National Park. The Chetco River winds its way southwestward to its mouth near Brookings, Oregon.
