bizarro Lake Michigan

There was a Michigan-mitten-shaped peninsula along with a Lake-Michigan-shaped bay at the northwest end of Hudson Bay that I noticed on Google Maps; it was a twilighty/icy kind of view. I then Street Viewed it; the bay was actually only about a city block wide despite looking just a bit smaller than Lake Michigan and the Michigan Lower Peninsula themselves on the map (partly via Mercator distortion). The south part of the bay sloped sharply down, even the surface of the bay water itself, to the south; the Street View was an afternoon view with the sun slightly north of west. The bay shore was inhabited by small clusters of Boston-suburb-like houses, and I tried to associate these clusters to Lake Michigan cities in corresponding positions (e.g. Chicago, Milwaukee, Gary), but there was only really development in the Milwaukee position).
