  STS090-751-022 Possum Kingdom Lake, Texas April 1998
This south-southeast-looking view shows in sun glint, Possum Kingdom Lake on the Brazos River. Located 85 miles (137 km) to the west of Fort Worth in the rugged canyon region of the Palo Pinto Mountains in the North Texas Hill Country, Possum Kingdom Lake is 65 miles (105 km) long and covers an area of nearly 20000 acres (8100 hectares). Constructed during the 1940ís primarily for flood control and hydroelectric production, the lake has become a prime recreation area and resort community. The small city of Graham is discernible in the bottom left portion of the image.
