  STS035-076-066 Geegully Creek, Western Australia, Australia December 1990
Geegully Creek, a short tributary of the Fitzroy River in northern Western Australia, is an intermittent stream that drains northward from the Edgar Range. Numerous stream channels and a fairly wide floodplain are visible in this image of Geegully Creek. The floodplain also includes several dry lake beds (lighter-colored features seen as fingers extending out from the main stream channel). The parallel, linear pattern that cuts across the picture are east-west aligned sand ridges. Some of this grassy landscape shows unusual dark-light designs that have been produced by grass fires.
