This high level, small-scale photo shows a large stretch of the eastward flowing Assiniboine River 1 and the junction with Cypress River 2. Specular reflection results in both rivers having a very light tone near their junction 3. In this area the Assiniboine River is incised into the Assiniboine Delta. Dunes 4, now mainly stabilized by grasses 5 and trees 6, have been created by wind action.

The area covered measures 11.375 miles (18.3 km) by 11.375 miles (18.3 km) for a total area of 129.4 square miles (335.1 square km). The sections of the DLS system (one square mile in area) 7 are a good rough indicator of the area covered. PTH 34 8 crosses the area from north to south.
