Satellite view of The Upper Great Lakes

As seen from a satellite, Lake Michigan  is in the foreground with some of Lake Superior showing above it and Lake Huron to the east.  Geologically, Lake Michigan and Lake Huron are the same lake because they are at the same sea level.  They are like Siamese twins attached through the straits of Mackinac.  These are the upper Great Lakes.

Not in the picture are Lake Erie and Lake Ontario, the lower Great Lakes.

  1. i always love a satellite shot of michigan and the great lakes - i have a very good large print of of one that i have framed in my family room. while i lived in calif - it was a great learning tool for those west of the rockies that had never really viewed the great lakes in any form or fashion.
