Hāʻawi kēia mau loko ʻelima nui i mau mile o nā kahakai, nā pali, nā puʻu, kahi mau ipukukui, nā mokupuni e pili ana i ke kahakai a me nā kaona hoʻoneʻe ʻAʻole ia he mea e kahaha ai kāhea ʻia ia "ke kolu o ke kapakai" ʻoiai kēia mau loko iʻa o kahi ʻano ʻokoʻa o nā ʻano holoholona. Hoʻohui ʻia, holo nā waʻa o nā ʻano like ʻole ma waena o kēia nui o ka hoʻonui ʻana o ka wai hou a he mea maʻamau no nā lawaiʻa a me nā poʻe aloha kayak e huikau me nā moku peʻa, nā mokuahi ukana, nā waʻapā, etc.

ʻO ke kipa ʻana i nā loko ʻelima nui ma ʻAmelika kahi manaʻo maikaʻi loa no ka wā hoʻomaha nui. Inā kēia kāu hihia a makemake ʻoe e kipa iā lākou, a laila e ʻike hou wau e pili ana i kēia mau mea kupaianaha o ke kūlohelohe.

ʻO Lake Michigan kekahi o nā loko nui ʻelima ma ʻAmelika Hui Pū ʻIa akā ʻo ia wale nō kahi i loko loa o ka ʻāina mai ka hāʻawi ʻia ʻana o nā poʻe ʻē aʻe me Kanada. Ua puni ʻo ia i nā mokuʻāina ʻo Wisconsin, ʻIlino, Indiana a me Mikikina, a ua kapa ʻia ka inoa ma muli o ka loko ponoʻī.

He ʻāpana kēia o 57.750 kilomika kilomika a me ka hohonu o 281 mau mika. Ua manaʻo ʻia ʻo ia ka loko nui loa ma waena o kahi ʻāina a me ka lima o ka honua. ʻO kona leo he 4.918 cubic km o ka wai a kamaʻilio ʻo Lake Michigan i nā paka a me nā kahakai he nui.

Ma kahi o 12 miliona mau kānaka e noho ana ma kahakai, ʻo ka hapa nui o lākou i nā wahi mākaʻikaʻi liʻiliʻi e ola ana i nā hiki ke hāʻawi ʻia e Lake Michigan. ʻO ka hoʻolimalima ʻana i ka lā e kipa ai i ka loko kahi manaʻo maikaʻi e hauʻoli i ke kūlohelohe i waho, hoʻomaha a me ka hemo ʻana mai ka hana maʻamau. ʻO kahi hoʻolālā leʻaleʻa loa e kau i luna o kahi moku ferry e hele i ka moana. Ma hope, ʻaʻohe mea maikaʻi aʻe ma mua o ka hoʻāʻo ʻana i ka meaʻai kūloko i waiwai i ka salemona a me ka iʻa.

Ma ke kahakai ʻo Lake Michigan, ma ka mokuʻāina ʻo ʻIlino, ʻo ia kekahi o nā kūlanakauhale nui loa o ʻAmelika Hui Pū ʻIa: ʻO Kikako. ʻIke ʻia ʻo Windy City, ʻo ia ke kolu o nā kūlanakauhale nui loa i ʻAmelika Hui Pū ʻIa, ma hope o New York a me Los Angeles.

He kūlanakauhale hou a cosmopolitan ia kahi home ma mua o 1.100 skyscrapers. I kēia manawa ʻo ka hale kiʻekiʻe ʻo Willis Tower (i kapa ʻia ʻo Sears Tower), akā i ka 1920 ʻo ia ka Wrigley Building, nona ka hale kiaʻi i hoʻolālā ʻia ma hope o ka Giralda ma Seville.

ʻO kēia loko e pili ana iā Minnesota, Wisconsin, a me Michigan ma ka ʻaoʻao US a me ʻAnakona ma ka ʻaoʻao Kanada. Ua kapa ʻia ka ʻohana Ojibwe ʻo Gichigami ʻo ia hoʻi "wai nui" a ʻo ia ka loko wai wai nui nui loa ma ka honua. I mea e hāʻawi aku ai iā ʻoe i kahi manaʻo no kona nui nui, hiki i ka Lake Superior ke loaʻa ka nui o nā Lakes Nui ʻē aʻe a ʻekolu mau mea e like me Lake Erie. ʻO ia ka hohonu, nui, a anuanu hoʻi o nā Lago Nui ma ʻAmelika Hui Pū ʻIa.

Ma ke ʻano he hoihoi, nā ʻino ma Lake Superior e hana i nā nalu hoʻopaʻa i ʻoi aku ma mua o 6 mika, akā ua hoʻopaʻa ʻia nā nalu o 9 mau mika. Kupaianaha!

Ma ka ʻaoʻao ʻē aʻe, ma loko o kēia loko wai kekahi mau mokupuni nona ka nui ʻo ka Royale Island ma ka mokuʻāina ʻo Michigan. Aia i loko o kēia nā loko ʻē aʻe i loaʻa nā mokupuni. I kēlā me kēia hihia, nā mokupuni nui nui ʻo Lake Superior me Mikipicoten Island ma ka moku ʻo Ontario a me Madeline Island ma ka mokuʻāina ʻo Wisconsin.

Ma ka hoʻohālikelike ʻana, ʻo ka loko liʻiliʻi loa ma ka Lakes Nui ma ʻAmelika Hui Pū ʻIa ʻo Lake Ontario. Aia ia ma ka hikina ma mua o ke koena o nā loko a pili iā Canada a me ʻAmelika Hui Pū ʻIa: ʻo ka ʻaoʻao ʻākau i ka panalāʻau ʻo ʻAnakona a ʻo ka ʻaoʻao hema a i ka mokuʻāina ʻo Nu Ioka.

E like me ka Lake Superior, he mau mokupuni kekahi ona, ʻo ka mokupuni ʻo Wolfer ka nui, aia ma kahi kokoke i Kingston ma ka puka o ka muliwai ʻo St. Lawrence.

Inā mākou e kamaʻilio e pili ana i nā kikowaena lehulehu i haʻi ʻia a puni ʻo Lake Ontario, ʻike mākou ma ke kapa komohana o ka ʻaoʻao Kanada ka hui nui i kapa ʻia ʻo Golden Horseshoe kahi home o kahi 9 miliona mau kānaka a komo pū nā kūlanakauhale ʻo Hamilton a me Toronto. Ma ka ʻaoʻao ʻAmelika, ʻo ka hapa nui o kona kapakai ma ke kaona akā koe ʻo Rochester ma Monroe County (Nu Ioka).

I uka, ma kahi o 30 mau kilomita ke mamao aku, hiki iā mākou ke loaʻa ke kūlanakauhale ʻo Syracuse a pili ia i ka loko e kahi auwai. Ma kahi o 2 miliona mau poʻe e noho nei ma ka ʻaoʻao ʻAmelika.

ʻO Lake Huron kekahi o nā Lakes Nui ma ʻAmelika Hui Pū ʻIa, kikoʻī i ka nui ʻo ia ka lua o ka nui o nā ʻelima a ʻo ka hā o ka nui loa ma ka honua. ʻOi aku ka nui ma mua o Croatia a pau! Aia ia ma waena o ʻAmelika Hui Pū ʻIa a me Kanada, ma ka waena konu o ʻAkau ʻAmelika a ʻo ia kekahi o nā mākaʻikaʻi kipa ʻia loa no kāna mau hiʻohiʻona nani, ʻo ia hoʻi e nā poʻe mākaʻikaʻi.

ʻO Lake Huron kahi i koho ʻia e nā poʻe ʻAmelika he nui e hoʻolilo i ko lākou wā hoʻomaha. I loko o nā mahina kauwela, hoʻonohonoho ʻia nā huakaʻi a puni nā wahi e ʻike i ke kūloko kūlohelohe a me kekahi mea hoʻopaʻa mōʻaukala kokoke i Lake Huron, e like me ka Lighthouse. ʻAe kēia mau huakaʻi i nā malihini e aʻo hou e pili ana i ka mōʻaukala o kēia wahi a ʻike i kāna waiwai kūlohelohe i ke kikoʻī.

Eia hou, aia kekahi mau hana wai e like me ka kayaking a i ʻole ka luʻu scuba. ʻOiai ke hele wāwae nei i waena o kekahi o nā kaukani mokupuni i loaʻa i kēia loko. Ke hiki ʻole ke kiʻi ʻia, ʻoluʻolu ka poʻe e hoʻopuni iā ​​lākou e like me ka Turnip kaulana, ʻo ka photogenike loa o lākou āpau me ka ulu lāʻau paina keʻokeʻo ma luna.

Ma ke ʻano he hoihoi, piha ʻo Lake Huron i nā mokupuni, aia ka hapa nui o lākou i ka ʻākau, ma loko o nā palena palena o Kanada, ʻo Manitoulin Island ka mea nui ma ka honua ma kahi loko wai hou.

ʻO Lake Erie ka ʻaoʻao hema o nā Lakes ʻelima nui ma ʻAmelika Hui Pū ʻIa a me ka papau. Aia ia ma ka palena me Ontario ma Kanada a lawelawe ʻia ma ke ʻano he palena me nā mokuʻāina o Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan a me New York ma ka ʻaoʻao US.

Ma muli o ka nui (noho ʻo ia ma kahi o 25.700 kilomika kilomika), ua manaʻo ʻia ʻo ia ka loko maoli he ʻumikūmākolu i ka honua. Hiki ke hoʻokele piha, aia kahi kiʻekiʻe ma luna o ka ʻilikai o 173 mau mika a me kahi hohonu o 19 mika ka hohonu; i kēia ʻano, ʻo ia ka papaʻu loa o nā Loko Nui ma ke ʻano he nui.

ʻO ia ka hope loa o nā Lakes Nui i ʻike ʻia a ua kapa ʻia e ka poʻe mākaʻikaʻi Palani nā inoa ʻo ia ʻo Lake Erie no ka hoʻohanohano ʻana i kekahi ʻohana ʻōiwi o ka inoa like e noho ana ma ia wahi.

E like me nā loko ʻē aʻe, nui nā moku ma Lake Erie kekahi. I ka huina nui he iwakāluakūmāhā, ʻeiwa o lākou no Kanada. ʻO kekahi o nā mokupuni nui ʻo Kelleys Island, South Bass Island, a ʻo Johnson's Island.

Ma ke ʻano he hoihoi, aia i ka Lake Erie kāna microclimate ponoʻī, kahi e momona ai kēia wahi no ka ulu ʻana i nā hua, nā mea kanu, a me nā kumu waina no ka hana ʻana i ka waina. Kaulana pū ʻia ʻo Lake Erie no kāna mau hau hau ʻino ʻo Lake Effect i hoʻolei ʻia i nā kaona hikina o ke kūlanakauhale, mai Shaker Heights a i Buffalo. Kū kēia i ka hoʻoilo o ka hoʻoilo a me ka wanaʻao mua.


Hoʻopili ka ʻike o ka ʻatikala i kā mākou kumumanaʻo o ka hoʻoponopono hoʻoponopono. E hōʻike i kahi kaomi hemahema ʻaneʻi.
