Lake Erie

Lake Erie

The Great Lakes have completed thawing and are now entirely ice free, as the land around them becomes green with spring foliage.

The lakes appear dark blue and mostly free of sediments, with the exception of Lake Erie, which has some greenish swirls of sediments in its southern portion and around Long Point.

Long Point is a sand spit and wetlands area located on Lake Erie’s north shore in the province of Ontario, Canada. It is approximately 40-km long and is about a kilometre wide at its thickest point. Long Point Bay is on the north side of the spit, while most of the sediments flow off its southern side.
