Geographic Region: USA-MICHIGAN

STS068-164-125 West of Saginaw Bay, Michigan, U.S.A. October 1994
Featured in this southwest-looking, low-oblique photograph are the shoreline (in sunglint) of Saginaw Bay (left edge) and the forest and agricultural lands of eastern Michigan west of Saginaw Bay as far west as Houghton Lake and Higgins Lake (right and top of center, respectively). This popular tourist area has a glacial landscape with high concentrations of sand and moraines and a higher elevation than that of southern Michigan. Visible are the runways of Paul B. Wurtsmith Air Force Base and the Au Sable River (bottom left); Midland and two small reservoirs on the Tittabawassee River northwest of Midland (upper left); and West Twin Lake and the small city of Lewiston (barely discernible at bottom right).
