Northeastern USA and Southeastern Canada - April 13th, 2009

Southeastern Canada remains dusted with snow while the northeastern United States are snow free in this spring image.

Lake Ontario and its nearby Finger Lakes are visible left of the center, while the eastern tip of Lake Huron is visible on the edge of the image.

Moving over to the coast, the hook-shaped Cape Cod area in Massachusetts, USA is visible at the far right. To the south, Long Island is situated just off the coast, with New York City at its western tip.

Between Lake Ontario and Cape Cod, to the North, is Lake Champlain, a natural, freshwater lake located mainly within the states of Vermont and New York, USA, but partially situated across the US-Canada border in the Canadian province of Quebec.

East of Lake Champlain, a white trail runs North to South. This is the snow-capped peaks of the Green Mountains, in Vermont. The range, which is part of the Appalachian Mountains, extends approximately 400 km (250 mi) and has five peaks over 4,000 feet.
