  STS51B-053-0020 Cleveland, Tennessee, U.S.A. May 1985
Four highly reflective reservoirs in the upper third of the photograph--large Hiwassee Lake (North Carolina), Nottley Lake (Georgia), Blue Ridge Lake (Georgia) and Lake Ocoee (Tennessee)--are partially visible in the forested Blue Ridge Mountains, part of the much larger Appalachian Mountains. Surrounded by these reservoirs is a circular, deforested area, which is probably the result of environmental degradation. West of the forested mountains is a series of paralleling, concentric arcs of darker, forested ridgelines and narrow valleys. Barely visible are south Chattanooga (bottom right) with Interstate Highway 75 and a railroad that connect Chattanooga with Cleveland, Tennessee, and Dalton, Georgia.
