Leelanau County: Second Watery-est in the Nation!

i'll be on the waterThanks to the Wikipedia entry for Leelanau County, Michigan, I learned something cool this morning:

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 2,532 square miles (6,557.8 km2), of which 348 square miles (901.3 km2) is land and 2,184 square miles (5,656.5 km2) (86.24%) is water. The county has the second-highest proportion of water area of any county in the United States, behind only Keweenaw County, Michigan. Lake Leelanau is the county’s largest body of inland water…

Seems like something we should be spreading around!

To see some of this water, check out the Water slideshow from the Leelanau (dot com) group on Flickr.
