Lake Ontario & Around

 

These photos were taken by myself (Hanif Bayat)

Except Lake Michigan, which is located completely inside the USA, all the other great lakes of north America are shared between Ontario and the USA. These lakes are connected to each other and they have the largest source of freshwater on earth. The water at first goes from Lake Superior to Lake Michigan,  Lake Huron and Georgian bay and then from Lake Huron to Lake Erie and later through the Niagara river the water passes to Lake Ontario. Finally through St. Lawrence river, water goes from Lake Ontario to the Atlantic ocean. Lake Ontario average depth is around 85 meters, which make it almost the deepest lake after lake Superior in north America great lakes, however Lake Ontario is the smallest one in size.
