STS039-085-031 Fort Worth, Texas, U.S.A. May 1991
Metropolitan Fort Worth, built on the flat terrain of the grand prairie of north-central Texas, is featured in this photograph. The central business district is the highly reflective focal point for numerous roads that radiate outward. Visible are Interstate Highway 30, which traverses the center of the urban area; Interstate Highway 20, which follows the southern periphery of the urban subdivisions; the merging of the two highways west of the city and continuing as Interstate 20; and Interstate Highway 820, a major loop that skirts the west, northwest, and north sides of Fort Worth. Viewing clockwise from the upper right corner are seven lakes--Grapevine Lake, Mountain Creek Lake, Joe Pool Lake, Lake Arlington, Benbrook Lake, Lake Worth, and Eagle Mountain Lake. Visible are the runways of three airports--Alliance (north), Dallas-Fort Worth International (northeast), and Carswell Air Force Base (west of downtown).
