Title: View of Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky border area
Description:
A vertical view of the Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky border area, as 
photographed from Earth orbit by one of the six lenses of the
Itek-furnished  S190-A Multispectral Photographic Facility Experiment
aboard the Skylab space  station. The long, narrow ridge is Pine Mountain;
and it is crossed by U.S.  25E as it passes through the famed Cumberland
Gap which at 1,600 feet  elevation crosses Cumberland Mountain. Kingsport,
Tennessee is located east  of Cumberland Gap near the center of the
picture. Interstate 81 under  construction can be seen southeast of
Kingsport. Bristol, Tennessee-Virginia  is further east. Greenville and
Elizabethton, Tennessee can also be seen in  this photograph. The clouds
across the southeast edge of the picture are over  the Blue Ridge
Mountains.
