Image Caption: STS068-229-015 Saint Marys River and Straits of Mackinac, Michigan, U.S.A. October 1994
This panoramic, southeast-looking, low-oblique photograph features sediment-laden Saint Marys River; Sault Sainte Marie; and the Straits of Mackinac, which separate lower Michigan and the Upper Peninsula. Saint Marys River and the Straits of Mackinac are important links in the Saint Lawrence Seaway. Visible are southeastern Lake Superior (bottom), northern Lake Huron (top center), and northern Lake Michigan (near right center). Whitefish Bay is apparent (nearly enclosed just left of center). Ontario Province in Canada lies north of Saint Marys River.
