  STS059-L08-096 Lake of the Woods and Red Lake, Minnesota, U.S.A. April 1994
This south-southwest-looking, low-oblique photograph features ice- and snow-covered Lake of the Woods (bottom right) and Red Lake (center) in northern Minnesota. A remnant of glacial Lake Agassiz, Lake of the Woods is 72 miles (116 kilometers) long, 10 to 60 miles (16 to 97 kilometers) wide, and covers 1695 square miles (4390 square kilometers). The lake, with its irregular shoreline and approximately 14 000 islands, receives the Rainy River (lower left) on its southern end and is drained to the north by the Winnipeg River (not visible). Red Lake, whose western and southern portions are part of Red Lake Indian Reservation, is divided into upper and lower sections, is 41 miles (66 kilometers) long, and covers 451 square miles (1168 square kilometers). With abundant fish and game, Lake of the Woods and Red Lake are resort areas, with Beltrami Island State Forest located between them. Apparent are numerous ice-covered lakes, including irregular Leech Lake in Chippewa National Forest, demonstrating why Minnesota is known as the Land of 10 000 Lakes.
