3.28: The Assiniboine Spillway, Assiniboine River, and an Abandoned Channel

This low oblique photo was taken looking along the Assiniboine spillway from south to north. An old abandoned channel (the southern most 4 in Figure 3.26) can be seen in the centre 1. The snow cover emphasizes the meander scrolls within the abandoned loop 2. In other areas, the trees that tend to grow on the ridges 3 pick out meander scrolls. A road runs along the east side of the spillway, just above the floodplain 4.
