Image Caption: STS073-726-031 Red River Valley, Northwest Louisiana, U.S.A. October 1995
The most dramatic feature of this south-looking photograph is the broad, largely cultivated floodplain of the Red River as it makes a 90-degree course change from east to south just east of Texarkana. Highly reflective sandbars, spaced randomly along the main channel of the river, allow it to be traced across the floodplain. Visible are large, dark Wright Patman Lake southwest of Texarkana and elongated Lake Erling in extreme southwestern Arkansas. Most of the landscape in this tristate area is gently rolling, verdant hills.
