Image Caption: STS61B-052-0043 Kingsville, Alazan Bay, and Baffin Bay, Texas, U.S.A. November 1985
This north-northwest-looking, low-oblique color infrared photograph features the grasslands and scrubland that comprise portions of the 2000-square-mile (5180-square-kilometer) King Ranch in south Texas. Kingsville, 34 miles (55 kilometers) southwest of Corpus Christi (not in photograph) and headquarters of the King Ranch, is a processing center for natural gas, dairy cattle, cotton, and winter vegetables. Visible are Baffin Bay and sediment-laden Alazan Bay. A small portion of Padre Island is also discernible.
