STS068-230-086 Thunder Bay and Alpena, Michigan, U.S.A. October 1994
Thunder Bay, an inlet of Lake Huron, and Alpena, at the mouth of the Thunder River, are apparent in this south-looking, low-oblique photograph. The city, home of an annual winter carnival, lies in a year-round resort area. Three lakes are discernible--Long Lake north of Alpena, a portion of Grand Lake (near bottom center), and Hubbard Lake to the south-southwest (upper right). Manufactured products include cement, paper, machinery, and automobile parts; a large limestone quarry lies east of the city.
