18.37: Power Line Near Treesbank

The direction followed by a power line 1 is very obvious on this photo of an area near the junction of the Souris 2 and Assiniboine 3 rivers. It is clearest where it cuts through woodland 4, and it does in fact continue to the southeast 5, but it cannot be seen on the air photo. Also shown is the CP line 6 and PR 453 7 through Treesbank 8. Note also an abandoned channel of the Souris 9 and a shelterbelt of coniferous trees 10 identified by their dark tone and pointed shadows 11.
