Lake Erie, Western New York

Here are a few one minute videos I took while visiting one of my most favorite places: Lake Erie. 

Lake Erie is the fourth largest lake of the five Great Lakes of North America, and the tenth - twelfth largest globally in terms of surface area.  

Lake Erie's northern shore is bounded by Canada, Ontario, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, and Michigan. 

The lake is named after the Iroquois tribe [Erieehronon] indigenous Indians who lived along its southern shore. 

Erielhonan is an Iroquoian word for "long tail", which describes the shape of the lake.
