  NM23-746-711 Thunder Bay, Isle Royale, Ontario, Canada Winter 1997
This east-northeast-looking low-oblique view shows the shoreline and ice covered bays of southwestern Ontario and Isle Royale just off shore. Isle Royale and its smaller islands is a wilderness area in northwest Lake Superior and is part of the International Biosphere Reserve System. Isle Royale is a semi-primitive forested area 9 miles (14 km) wide and 45 miles (72 km) long and has a land area of 210 sq. miles (545 sq. km). The island has rugged fjord-like shorelines with excellent harbors and is dotted with 30 lakes. The highest point on the island near its southwestern end is Mount Desor at 1346 feet (411 meters). Bald eagles, timber wolves, and a great herd of moose enjoy their natural habitat. Tourism on the island is limited from late April to early October. Fishing in the bays around the island is excellent. Partially ice-covered Thunder Bay, an inlet of Lake Superior, is visible just to the left (northwest) of Isle Royale. The southern portions of the ice covered Lake Nipogoon, one of the largest freshwater lakes in Ontario, is discernible in the top-left portion of the image.
