Amazing Lakes of the World

     Despite being covered by water, only a tiny fraction -- 0.008 percent -- of Earth's freshwater is contained in rivers and lakes. Yet there is astonishing variety among the lakes the of the world. From pink lakes in Australia and Kenya, to lakes filled with harmless jellyfish, lakes provide strange environments for different species of animals and plants. The lakes listed HERE are some of the most spectacular and unusual that the world has to offer.

Of special interest to me are the Great Lakes because I live in very close proximity to Lake Erie. 

The Great Lakes: Superior, Michigan, Huron, Erie, Ontario. 
The St. Lawrence River 
Niagara Falls.  In the summer of 1969, engineers stopped the flow of water to the American and Bridal Veil Falls. This site shows the dry Falls.
