This west-looking, low-oblique, color infrared photograph features the forests surrounding dark blue Houghton Lake (left center) and lighter blue Higgins Lake to the north. Two smaller lakes are discernible--Lake Margrethe north-northwest of Lake Higgins near the small resort city of Grayling (right of center) and Lake Saint Helen east of Lake Houghton. The area is a year-around resort and recreational area and provides lumber and wood products manufacturing. Farmland is limited in the glacial landscape of sandy hills and moraines.
