16.22: Souris Valley Flooded in Spring

This large-scale photo shows part of the area shown in figure 16.21. The flooding of part of the spillway floor—dark-toned—is clearly seen 1, and the flooding emphasizes the embankments confining the Souris channel 2. This is a much older photo than that in figure 16.21, but a small dam west of the Souris 3 has already been constructed (it is seen on figure 16.21), but another one visible east of the river on figure 16.21 is not visible here 4. Only two dugouts are visible on this photo 5.
