  STS068-173-103 Susquehanna River Valley, Pennsylvania October 1994
The Susquehanna River winds it's way through and around several of the prominent ridges in this section of the folded Appalachian Mountains in central Pennsylvania. Harrisburg, the state capital, is located along the east side of the Susquehanna River (lower left corner). Part of the Juniata River is visible as it flows into the Susquehanna River north of the Harrisburg area and paralleling ridges of the Blue Mountains. Even though the mountain ridges and cultivated valley region is very much in evidence in this northeast view of the Susquehanna River Basin, North Mountain (upper left quadrant) presents a different type of mountainous terrain. The lighter colored areas in the valleys show agricultural lands and the darker landscape is predominately forested lands.
