STS062-083-063 Northwest Georgia, U.S.A. March 1994
A broad, mainly cultivated, north-south-oriented valley is apparent in this low-oblique photograph of the northwest corner of Georgia. A segment of Interstate Highway 75 along the western side of valley connects the rural communities of Dalton (clustered, lighter area to the north) and Calhoun (smaller, lighter cluster to the south). East of the highway is dark, irregular-shaped Carters Lake (bottom center). Several linear mountain ridges and valleys lie west of the broad valley. The more uniform, darker area (bottom right corner) is part of the Chattahoochie National Forest and the Blue Ridge Mountains.
