San Juan Islands

Region: Pacific - North

Size: 31" wide by 25" high

State(s): WA, BC

Price: $298

The San Juan Islands are the pinnacles of a submerged mountain range that connects Vancouver Island with the mainland. They're a tidal-gateway between the open ocean and the Gulf of Georgia to the north. Because of this, heavy tide-rips are common in many of the island's inner channels. If it weren't for the interference caused by these tide-rips, the islands exposed shorelines would suffer from significant erosion during winter storms. Instead, erosion is most dramatic only during slack tide and high-water wave-cuts are visible on many of the islands exposed shorelines.

Salish Sea

Region: Pacific - North

Size: 25" wide by 31" high

State(s): WA, BC

Price: $258

An intricate network of coastal waterways, the Salish (SAY-lish) Sea includes the Strait of Georgia, the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the Puget Sound, and all of their connecting channels and adjoining waters. This name was only recently made official (2009), in an effort to raise consciousness about the interconnectedness of the region's waters and ecosystems.

Puget Sound

Region: Pacific - North

Size: Size: 25" wide by 31" high

State(s): WA

Price: $258

Part of the Salish Sea, the Puget Sound was shaped by glaciers that retreated less than 11,000 years ago. Ice sheets about 3,000 feet thick covered Seattle (nearly 6,000 feet at the US/Canada border), and when they retreated, they carved Lake Washington, Sammamish, Hood Canal, and the main Puget Sound basin.

Lake Washington

Region: Pacific - North

Size: 14" wide by 31" high

State(s): WA

Price: $178

A large, freshwater, ribbon lake that's adjacent to the city of Seattle, Lake Washington is fed by the Sammamish River at its north end and the Cedar River at its south. It's connected to the Puget Sound by Lake Union and a series of manmade locks and is spanned east-west by the world's longest, second-longest, and fifth-longest floating bridges.

Lake Tahoe

Region: Pacific - Central

Size: 25" wide by 21" high

State(s): CA, NV

Price: $228

Located high in the Sierra Nevadas, Lake Tahoe is the largest alpine lake in North America and, with a maximum depth of 1,645 feet, it's also America's second-deepest lake overall. It's known for its clear water and sweeping mountain vistas. Its banks are home to a number of popular ski resorts, summer recreation areas, and casinos.

San Francisco Bay

Region: Pacific - Central

Size: 25" wide by 31" high

State(s): CA

Price: $258

A shallow, productive estuary, San Francisco Bay connects the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers with the Pacific Ocean. Gathering the rainfall and snowmelt from an enormous watershed, these outflows drain approximately 40% of California into the bay, which then flows out (under the Golden Gate Bridge) into the Pacific Ocean. It's the largest Pacific estuary in the Americas and, despite significant mining- and construction-related damage over the past century, it remains a rich part of the coast'

Great Lakes

Region: Interior Lakes

Size: 31" wide by 25" high

State(s): IL, MI, MN, OH, PN, NY, WI, On

Price: $298

Connected to the Atlantic Ocean through the Saint Lawrence Seaway and the Great Lakes Waterway, this collection of freshwater lakes represents the largest group on Earth and contains 21% of the world's surface fresh water. Though the lakes reside in separate basins, they form a single, naturally-interconnected body of water. Of the five lakes, Lake Michigan is the only one that is located entirely within the United States; the others form a water border between the US and Canada.

Lake Superior

Region: Interior Lakes

Size: 31" wide by 25" high

State(s): MN, WI, MI, ON

Price: $298

The largest of the Great Lakes, and the largest freshwater lake in the world (by surface area), Lake Superior is enormous. Its deepest point is 733 feet below sea level, which qualifies it as the lowest--and most insulated--point in the continental interior of the United States. The water at the bottom of the lake is so well insulated, in fact, that it stays a constant 39°F and only mixes with the warmer water above it twice each year (when the whole lake is 39 degrees). This phenomenon means t

Lake Michigan

Region: Interior Lakes

Size: 25" wide by 31" high

State(s): MI, IL, IN, WI

Price: $258

The only one of the Great Lakes located entirely in the US, Lake Michigan's beaches are sometimes referred to as the Third Coast (after those of the Pacific and Atlantic). When standing on the waters edge in Illinois, Wisconsin, or anywhere on the lower peninsula of Michigan, it's impossible to see land across the lake and the view is similar to that of an ocean.

Straits of Mackinac

Region: Interior Lakes

Size: 31" wide by 25" high

State(s): MI

Price: $258

Long ago, before rail lines had made it out to Chicago, most immigrants reached the midwest and Great Plains by boat through this strait. It's narrow enough to freeze over in the winter so, unfortunately, this convenient mode of transportation wasn't a year-round affair for our ancestors. Today we're fortunate to have powerful icebreakers to clear our way and a beautiful bridge to connect Michigan's upper and lower peninsulas, but the next time you're in the area, be sure to remember the histori

Lake Huron

Region: Interior Lakes

Size: 20" wide by 16" high

State(s): MI, ON

Price: $178

Lake Huron is home to the Georgian Bay, the largest bay in the Great Lakes, and also to Manitoulin Island, which is the largest freshwater island in the world. It's surrounded by the world's largest limestone quarries, and its beaches are sandy and shallow (excluding those along the coast of the Georgian Bay, which are rocky).

Lake Erie

Region: Interior Lakes

Size: 31" wide by 14" high

State(s): MI, OH, PA, NY, ON

Price: $178

The shallowest of the Great Lakes, Lake Erie is downstream of Lake Huron. Water flows through Lake St. Clair, and into Lake Erie via the Detroit River. Its outflow creates the stunning Niagara Falls.

Lake Charlevoix

Region: Interior Lakes

Size: 16" wide by 20" high

State(s): MI

Price: $138

A beautiful piece, this is the third largest lake in Michigan and has direct access to Lake Michigan via dredged channels. The lake is usually frozen for about three months of the year between January and April. It was previously named Pine Lake, but was changed in 1926 because, among other reasons, the surrounding pine trees had been harvested and there were 25 other lakes in Michigan with that name at the time.

Long Lake

Region: Interior Lakes

Size: 16" wide by 20" high

State(s): MI

Price: $138

There are 33 lakes in Michigan that share its name, but this "Long Lake" is a few miles southwest of Traverse City. It features 7 islands, excellent fishing, and makes as much of a fun getaway as it does a beautiful piece of art.

Lake George

Region: Atlantic - North

Size: 14" wide by 43" high

State(s): NY

Price: $298

Lake George is a beautiful, long, narrow lake that sits halfway between New York City and Montreal at the base of the Adirondack Mountains. It has been a popular summer getaway for more than a hundred years, although today you're sure to encounter far more campers, boaters, fishermen, and SCUBA divers than the Vanderbilts, Rockefellers, Roosevelts, and Whitneys who monopolized the area long ago.

Mount Desert Island

Region: Atlantic - North

Size: 25" wide by 31" high

State(s): ME

Price: $298

The second largest island along the Eastern seaboard, Mount Desert Island has been a popular vacation destination for more than 150 years. First popularized by affluent urbanites in the mid 19th century for its rustic appeal, the idea of preserving the island caught on quickly. A large portion of the island was purchased privately, then given to the federal government and established as a national park. Known as Acadia National Park today, that land--set aside long ago--attracts more than 2.5 million visitors each year; people escaping city life to hike, bicycle, and horseback ride its automobile-free carriage roads, soak in the beautiful scenery, and appreciate the foresight of those early visionaries.

Cape Cod

Region: Atlantic - North

Size: 25" wide by 31" high

State(s): MA

Price: $298

Referred to locally simply as "The Cape", it's historically a summer getaway for maritime-minded tourists seeking sunny beaches and old-world charm. In other seasons, the Cape serves as an invaluable barrier island, shielding much of the Massachusetts coastline from North Atlantic storm waves.

Martha's Vineyard

Region: Atlantic - North

Size: 20" wide by 16" high

State(s): MA

Price: $158

Known locally simply as "The Vineyard", the island is best known as an affluent summer colony. Most of its homes are seasonally occupied, and in the summer the population swells from 15,000 to over 100,000. It's accessible only by boat or by air.

Nantucket

Long Island Sound

Region: Atlantic - North

Size: 31" wide by 25" high

State(s): CT, NY

Price: $298

Centered around the Hamptons, this chart details the beauty of the Atlantic estuary known as Long Island Sound. Its tidal marshes are some of the most productive in the world, producing three to seven tons of vegetation per year, largely in the form of salt marsh grasses. When this grass is flushed out into the sound, it directly contributes to the great finfish and shellfish production the area has become known for.

Chesapeake Bay

Region: Atlantic - North

Size: 25" wide by 31" high

State(s): MD, VA

Price: $298

More than 150 rivers and streams drain into Chesapeake Bay, the largest estuary in the United States. It drains a basin of over 64,000 square miles into the Atlantic Ocean, but it's actually quite shallow. Its average depth is only 21 feet and almost a quarter of the bay is less than 6 feet deep.

Sanibel Island

Region: Atlantic - South

Size: 31" wide by 25" high

State(s): FL

Price: $258

Sanibel is a barrier island -- a collection of sand on the leeward (downwind) side of Pine Island, which is made of more solid coral rock. It's known for its bounty of seashells which is a result of the island's location and its east-west orientation. It sits on a large plateau that extends west into the Gulf of Mexico for several miles, creating a shelf for the shells to collect on and eventually wash onto the shore.

Key Biscayne

Region: Atlantic - South

Size: 14" wide by 31" high

State(s): FL

Price: $178

Lying just south of Miami, Key Biscayne is the southernmost of the barrier islands along Florida's Atlantic coast. Although it's named "Key", it isn't part of the Keys, it's actually a barrier island made from sand that's eroded from the Appalachian Mountains, carried to the coast by rivers, and then moved south by coastal currents. Because of this, the island has a different type of sand than the other "Keys"; Biscayne's is silicaceous and soft, while sand in the other Keys is coarse, derived f
