The Mississippi River Valley appears light tan in color in this image of the central and southern USA. Upon opening the full image, the river can be seen meandering southwards towards the Gulf of Mexico in a series of tight curves.

Also visible in the full version is the city of Saint Louis, Missouri, by a bend on the west bank of the river in the upper left quadrant. Visible to the southeast of the city, near the east bank of the river, is a fire releasing a plume of smoke towards the northeast.
