Image Caption: STS073-725-022 Kansas City, Missouri, U.S.A. October 1995
This west-looking, low-oblique photograph features the Missouri and Kansas Rivers and Kansas City, a major commercial, industrial, and transportation center in a rich grain and livestock producing region. The Missouri River from the northwest near Leavenworth, Kansas, and the Kansas River from the west near Lawrence, Kansas, join near downtown Kansas City. Apparent north of Kansas City are the runways of the Kansas City International Airport; northeast of the airport is Smithville Reservoir. Recovery from the floods of 1993 in the floodplains of both the Missouri and Kansas Rivers is evidenced by agricultural field patterns.
