  STS068-212-044 Erie Area, Pennsylvania October 1994
The industrial and port city of Erie, located in northwest Pennsylvania along the southern shore of Lake Erie. The port of Erie is one of the finest on the Great Lakes. A spit-like peninsula known as Presque Isle, surrounds Presque Isle Bay. The only entrance to the bay is a narrow channel on the northeast side of the peninsula. An extensive sediment plume is visible along this coasted section of Lake Erie. Agriculture in this region (lighter shades of green) includes the growing of assorted fruits and selected vegetables. The darker looking landscapes are forested lands. Interstate Highway 90 is the northeast-southwest highway (thin, light-colored, linear feature) that roughly parallels the southern shoreline of Lake Erie.
