The Greatest Lake
|Photo by Ben Prepelka
The Great Lakes, one of the greatest wonders of North America, often go uncelebrated and unrecognized as to their importance. The individual lakes are so large, a lake-bound freighter easily slips out of sight over the horizon. Eight states huddle around the lakes, contributing over 40 percent of the America's income generated from farming, manufacturing and mining. The five Great Lakes cover 94,000 square miles and hold 20 percent of the world's freshwater. In reference to their size, all five lakes are listed in the top dozen largest lakes in the world.
