Everglades and Lakes on the Florida Peninsula, USA

October 27th, 2010 Category: Lakes, Rivers

USA - October 15th, 2010

Sediments line the coast of Florida, particularly on the western side of the peninsula and near the tip, between the Everglades wetlands and the chain of islands known as the Florida Keys. On the eastern side, the cities of Miami and Fort Lauderdale can be seen sprawling along the coast to the right of the Everglades.

The large, dark blue body of water in the southern half of the peninsula is Lake Okeechobee, while the smaller, bright green lake to the north (best observed in the full image) is Lake Apopka. To its north is a thick, dark blue band lying parallel to the east coast – this is the St. Johns River.
