Apparent in this near-vertical photograph of Michigan’s eastern Upper Peninsula is the relatively flat, forested terrain of Chippewa County, the leading tourist county in the Upper Peninsula and the third leading tourist county in the state. Discernible are Hiawatha National Forest, Whitefish Bay, Interstate Highway 75 (left center to upper right), and two airports—Sault Sainte Marie Airport in Canada (bottom left) and Chippewa County International Airport east of Interstate Highway 75.
