STS068-164-127 Point Aux Barques, Michigan, U.S.A. October 1994
With Lake Huron to its east and Saginaw Bay to its west, a peninsula of rich agricultural land terminating at Point Aux Barques (lower right) is visible in this southwest-looking, low-oblique photograph. The peninsula has coastal lowlands inland from the shores of Lake Huron and Saginaw Bay, which shows sediment from the Saginaw River. The middle peninsula is composed of gently rolling terrain and some hilly moraines with forest cover more prevalent in the hilly regions. Barely discernible are Saginaw and Bay City (upper right); the western quarter of Lake Saint Clair (upper left); and Port Huron, where Lake Huron drains into the Saint Clair River (just above left center).
