Monroe Lake and Bloomington, Indiana
Within the woodlands of Hoosier National Forest, sediment-laden Monroe Lake (center
of photograph), the largest lake in Indiana, is featured in this northwest-looking, low-oblique photograph. Near the lake are Bloomington, home of the University of Indiana,
to the northwest and Bedford, noted for its limestone that is shipped worldwide, to the south (below left center). The floodplain of the East Fork White River (bottom left) is discernible southeast of the lake. The terrain of the region is hilly with forests, scattered agricultural areas, and abundant limestone.
