  NM21-767-094 Gary and Hammond, Indiana, U.S.A. Winter 1995 - 1996
The heavy industrial area of northwestern Indiana and the southern end of Lake Michigan are featured in this north-northeast-looking, low-oblique photograph. Following the outline of Lake Michigan west to east are the industrial cities of Whiting, Hammond, Gary, Portage, and Michigan City. Gary (near center), one of the world's greatest steel centers, is strategically located midway between the iron ore beds of Minnesota and the coal areas of the eastern and southeastern United States. South of the cities and the industrial complex are the rich agricultural lands that produce corn and soybeans. The white shorelines east of Gary are part of the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, an area with sand dunes 200 feet (60 meters) high, beaches, and marshes abutting the south shore of Lake Michigan.
