  STS085-716-009 Huron Mountains, Marquette, Michigan August, 1997
The forested Huron Mountains lie between Keeweenaw Bay and Marquette, Michigan in this southwest-looking low-oblique view. Extensive mining of iron ore and marble plus lumbering are major industries in this region. With the dense forests of pine and deciduous trees, the region is also a recreational area year around. Lake Superior, one of the largest lakes in the world covers the upper left portion of the image. Near the center of the image, open-pit mines and quarries can be seen. Northeast of the quarries along the shore of Lake Superior is the city of Marquette, the largest city in the Upper Peninsula. The city has docks and facilities to transport iron ore by ship to steel mills in Indiana, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. Marquette is also the home of the United States Olympic Education Center at Northern Michigan University where athletes train for the Winter Olympic Games. Near the upper right of the image is Grand Island, a National Recreation Area.
