18.33: Highway 10 Near Pine River

East of Duck Mountain PTH 10 1 follows the general north-northwest/south-southeast trend of the topography resulting from the deposition of strandlines by Lake Agassiz as it retreated eastward from Duck Mountain 2. In the east is low-lying marshy land 3 drained by rivers—Pine River 4 being one of them—that flow east to Sagamace Bay off Lake Winnipegosis. Between the “mountain” and the marshes is a narrow strip of agricultural land on the west side of which are three transport routes. PTH 10 (light-toned) is the most obvious, passing west of Pine River 5, in the past a forestry oriented community. The CN railway line 6 passes through Pine River. A power line 7 is located between the road and the railway line, and, as is usually the case, it is clearest where it passes through wooded land. PR 271 8 runs east/west along the township line between townships 32 and 33. Just north of it is the faint line of another power line 9 which may join the line previously mentioned.
