STS068-170-107A Cape Blanco and Coos Bay, Oregon, U.S.A. October 1994
The forest-covered Coast Range and the central Oregon coast are visible in this south-southeast-looking, low-oblique photograph. Small rectangles designate timber-cutting operations scattered throughout the Coast Range. The Rogue River is apparent entering the Pacific Ocean at the upper right of the photograph, and Cape Blanco is visible to the right of the center. Coos Bay, a small port city on the central Oregon coast with a population of more than 16 500, is visible at the bottom left of the photograph. Coos Bay, a popular tourist resort, also has lumber, shipping, fishing, and canning industries. North of Coos Bay is the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area.
