Sault Ste. Marie is the name of two cities on Saint Mary's River, separating Canada and the State of Michigan in the United States. Founded as a fur trading settlement in 1668, the town was split into two in 1797 when the Upper Peninsula was transferred to the U.S. The Saint Mary's River joins Lake Superior to Lake Huron. The two cities are joined by the International Bridge; the nearby Soo Locks bypass the River's rapids, and carries more tonnage than any other canal in the world. The image was acquired June 10, 2007, covers an area of 35.3 x 33.6 km, and is located at 46.4 degrees north latitude, 84.3 degrees west longitude.
