Lake Huron

From BR Bullpen

Lake Huron is one of the five Great Lakes and forms part of the border between Canada and the United States. Contrary to the other three border lakes (Lake Michigan is entirely in the U.S.), Lake Huron is oriented in a north-south and not an east-west direction, thus its western shore is in the state of Michigan, and its eastern one in Ontario. The Lake's size is increased by a large appendage to the east called Georgian Bay.

There are no large cities on the shore of Lake Huron. The most important towns are Sarnia, ON and Port Huron, MI, at the lake's southern tip where it empties into the St. Clair River, and the twin cities of Sault Ste. Marie, MI and Sault Ste. Marie, ON on the Ste. Marie River which connects the northern tip of Georgian Bay to Lake Superior. Lake Huron also connects with Lake Michigan, to the southwest, via the Straits of Mackinac.
