STS058-088-058 Missouri River and Washington, Missouri, U.S.A. October 1993
The scoured floodplain of the Missouri River is apparent in this near-vertical photograph. Before the floods of the spring and early summer of 1993, the floodplain was dotted with agricultural field patterns. Washington (barely discernible) is situated on the south bank of the Missouri River (upper left) whose bluffs sometimes exceed 250 feet (76 meters). East-west-oriented Interstate Highway 70 (bottom of photograph) is visible. This photograph was taken at the height of the fall foliage, which accounts for the reddish forested areas.
