STS062-153-143 Florida Panhandle, U.S.A. March 1994
The dark landscape of the Florida panhandle extends from the eastern half of the Apalachicola National Forest in the west through Saint Marks National Wildlife Refuge that borders the Apalachee Bay to the densely vegetated swampland of the Suwanne River delta and the Lower Suwanne National Wildlife Refuge at the mouth of the Suwanne River. Large, dark Okefenokee Swamp (near upper left corner) is located primarily in southeastern Georgia. Many stream channels can be identified by dense stands of vegetation, primarily woodlands, and lighter areas tend to be agricultural lands.
