Check out this video of U.S. beaches put together with satellite imagery by the good folks at NASA’s Earth Observatory.
Two of them are in the Great Lakes region: Wisconsin’s Apostle Islands Sandscape Natural Area and Michigan’s Sleeping Bear Dunes.
Good choices. They also happened to rank among the leaders that Echo readers voted as top natural features of the region.
That said, only these two Great lakes beaches show up in this compendium of some 29 beaches. And only four of the total – two more from Bear Lake in Idaho and Utah – are freshwater.
It’s a catchy video, but we detect a salty bias here. NASA might better take another satellite pass over the Sweetwater Seas.
