  STS062-090-050 Gulf of Patras, Greece March, 1994
The northeast-looking view shows the Gulf of Patras that connects the Gulf of Corinth through the Lepanto Strait to the east (upper right) with the Ionian Sea to the west (not visible on image). The snow-covered Panakhaikon Mountains of the northern Peloponnesus are visible midway between the upper right and right center of the image. Just left of the Panakhaikon is the port city of Patras. The city is the major commercial, industrial, and transportation center of the northwestern Peloponnesus. Near the upper left of the image is Lake Trinkhonis, a large recreation lake. To the lake’s south are the Arakhintos Mountains. Near the center left of the image is a section of the Akhelops River Delta.
