18.43: Gas Pipeline South of Hamiota

This photo shows the standard checkerboard pattern produced by the sections of the DLS with two prominent east/west lines cutting across the system. In the north 1 is the route of a gas pipeline, its light tone standing out against the darker tone of surrounding soils. Note the bend so that the line crosses the road at a sharp angle 2. In the south is the CN railway line (abandoned) 3 passing south of Oakner in the west 4.
