Lake Michigan’s basin is conjoining with that of Lake Huron to the east and having the same surface elevation, they are technically a single lake. The large size of the Lakes and the fact that they are prone to sudden and harsh storms, combined with the rocky shoals and shallows of Straits of Mackinac, increases the risk of water travel and has led hundreds of ships to their end.
