STS068-237-044 Marinette and Menominee, Wisconsin and Michigan, U.S.A. October 1994
Apparent in this east-northeast, low-oblique photograph is the Menominee River, which separates Wisconsin and Michigan, empties into Green Bay (near center of the photograph), and serves as the boundary between Marinette, Wisconsin, on its southwest bank and Menominee, Michigan, on its northeast bank. Marinette's major industries are pulp, paper, and tourism; Menominee is a ferry port and a marketplace for a cheese producing area. In the 1800s, the city was a great shipping point for lumber and was known as the white pine capital of the world. Visible are Lake Noquebay (bottom center), Green Bay and adjacent Door Peninsula to the east, and Chambers Island within the bay.
