Chicago, Illinois, U.S.A. February 1994 Snow cover in metropolitan Chicago, ice floes on parts of Lake Michigan, and ice along the lakeshore appear in this northeast-looking, low-oblique photograph. The Des Plains River flows southerly through Joliet, becomes the Illinois River south of Joliet, and eventually flows south-southwest into the Mississippi River. Discernible is the Fox River that flows northeastward through Aurora (bottom left).
