STS068-201-064 Northern Michigan, U.S.A. October 1994
This striking color infrared, northeast-looking, low-oblique photograph features the forests and lakes of northern Michigan from the Straits of Mackinac south to Mackinaw City, a popular year-round vacation and recreational area. Interstate Highway 75 traverses southward from Mackinaw City to Indian River (just above right center). Three large recreational lakes are visible--Mullett Lake east of Interstate Highway 75; larger Burt Lake west of Interstate Highway 75; and to the north, smallest Douglas Lake. Little Traverse Bay lies southwest of the lakes. Waugoshance Point is discernible just below left center of the photograph.
