STS068-209-070 Lake Erie, Ohio, U.S.A. October 1994
Lake Erie, the shallowest of the Great Lakes, is apparent in this south-looking, low-oblique, color infrared photograph. Discernible are eastern Cleveland (upper right); small communities with summer homes overlooking Lake Erie eastward from Cleveland to Painesville; and Interstate Highway 90 paralleling the lake. Much of the land south of Interstate Highway 90 resembles patterns in the deforested regions of Rondonia in the upper Amazon River Basin of Brazil (reference photograph STS046-078-026). Shoreline property values have improved during the last two decades as a result of the cleanup of Lake Erie.
