Image Caption: STS068-207-109 Whitefish Bay, Michigan, U.S.A. October 1994
Whitefish Bay (bottom left), bordering the northern shore of Chippewa County in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, is featured in this south-southeast-looking, low-oblique, color infrared photograph. The agricultural, dairy, and lumber area south and west of Sault Sainte Marie (just below left center) also has commercial fisheries and many recreational resorts. Discernible are a portion of the Hiawatha National Forest (near center of photograph), Interstate Highway 75 between Sault Sainte Marie southward to Saint Ignace (not discernible), and two airports--the Chippewa County International Airport east of Interstate Highway 75 (left of center) and the Sault Sainte Marie Airport in Canada at the entrance to Saint Marys River from Whitefish Bay just west of Sault Sainte Marie. Parisienne Island is apparent in the middle of Whitefish Bay (near bottom left).
