Appalachian Mountains from Space

On November 17, 2012, a NASA satellite captured this image showing the Appalachian Mountains and the Piedmont Plateau.  From the article found on NASA's Earth Observatory "This regional view shows the striking visual effect of the valley-and-ridge topography of the Appalachian Mountains as viewed from the International Space Station. The image shows more than 500 kilometers (300 miles) of this low mountain chain from northeast Pennsylvania (top right) to southern West Virginia, where a dusting of snow covers a patch of land (lower left)."  

Take a look.
