Image Caption: STS51B-038-0096 Columbia River, Richland, Kennewick, and Pasco; Washington; U.S.A. May 1985
This northeast-looking, low-oblique photograph shows the tricity area of Richland, Kennewick, and Pasco and the influx of the Snake River into the Columbia River. The economy of the tricity area is based on the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission Reserve, which has its headquarters in Richland. The area also benefits from surrounding farms and ranches. Numerous agricultural field patterns, including pivot-irrigation plots and densely sown agricultural fields, are visible in the Walla Walla River Valley near the upper right of the photograph. The McNary Dam is discernible on the Columbia River just below the center of the photograph.
