Image Caption: STS073-708-014 Gainesville, Georgia, U.S.A. October 1995
Approximately 50 miles (80 kilometers) northeast of Atlanta are Gainesville and large Lake Sidney Lanier (near center). Discernible are two main thoroughfares that connect Gainesville and Atlanta--Interstate Highway 98S and older U. S. Highway 23--and parts of U. S. Highway 19 west of Lake Sidney Lanier. Light, linear power line rights-of-way cut through the southern fringe of dark, mountainous Chattahoochee National Forest (upper left corner). Darker features depict forested lands, and lighter areas show agricultural patterns in this gently rolling landscape of northwest Georgia.
