NASA Photos Taken From Adirondack Park in St. Lawrence County, New York
The two images captured are from Adirondack Park in St. Lawrence County, New York.
Adirondack Park is the largest state park in the United States spanning six million acres or one-sixth of the state of New York, according to NASA.
"The park’s dense landscape of deciduous trees, or trees who seasonally lose their leaves, include sugar and red maples, quaking and bigtooth aspens. Eastern Larches also add to the color, as its needles turn a brilliant gold in autumn," NASA adds.
