LOCATION Direction Photo #: STS51I-42-26 Date: Aug. 1985
Geographic Region: AUSTRALIA-WA

STS51I-42-0026 Lyons River, Western Australia, Australia August 1985
The eastern edge of the Kennedy Range (left side of image) forms the western boundary of this section of the Lyons River in west central Western Australia. In fact, the 1000 foot (305 meter) contour line can be traced along a north-south oriented escarpment (steep faced slope with shadows) in the left third of the image. The multi-braided stream channels of the Lyons River has produced a fairly broad floodplain (upper right to bottom center). Several tributary streams (also oriented generally north-south) drain into the main stream channel of the Lyon River. All of the drainage features are ephemeral in this desert environment.
