  Title: Southern Appalachia, USA
  Description:
  In this oblique view of the Georgia and South Carolina coast, the southern 
  most Appalachians (32.0N, 83.0W) dominate the foreground.  Contrails criss 
  cross over Atlanta, a major airline hub.  The coastal plain which wraps 
  around the southern Appalachians, is well delineated.  Faintly visible
  under  the haze toward Earth's limb are the Great lakes (Lake Michigan near
  center),  the folded belts of the central Appalachians and Long Island, New
  York.
