Chapter 2: Location, Borders, and Lakes

2.8: Part of Turtle Mountain Provincial Park

Although some wood clearing has taken place in North Dakota, the only clear indication of the international border is a cut line 1 through the woodland. A track runs east/west just inside Canada 2. The photograph illustrates well the wooded, lake-strewn nature of Turtle Mountain Provincial Park. One of the lakes, Cauldwell Lake 3, is large enough to be named on the 1:250,000 map (62F, Virden) of the area. Several lakes are smaller than they used to be, white encrustations indicating former shorelines 4. Other lakes have either dried up completely or are seasonal 5.
