Fly along the southern shore of Lake Superior in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. (Link)
Pretty simple: start at the top ‘County map’. Click a county. The smallest map in the middle displays red squares that represent smaller areas. (This map is also clickable, use it to navigate along the particular county’s shoreline) The larger topo map at the bottom shows where each individual photo was taken. Once you click on a numbered dot you’ll see the image. Click on the largest image to see a higher resolution version. To return to the maps, click the ‘locater’ link. Don’t miss the ‘download maps’ (pdf) link for extras.
