The city of Chicago can be seen in northeastern Illinois at the southwestern tip of Lake Michigan in the lower left quadrant of this image.

Two rivers—the Chicago River in downtown and the Calumet River in the industrial far South Side—flow entirely or partially through Chicago.

Sediments from these rivers and others line the southern shores of Lake Michigan, giving it a greenish frame.
