  STS028-076-003 International Peace Garden, Manitoba, Canada August 1989
The roughly oval-shaped, large dark feature in the center of the picture is the International Peace Garden. This international park (Canada-U.S.) straddles the 49th parallel with the larger area located in northern North Dakota and the smaller area located in southwestern Manitoba. The Peace Garden is a slightly elevated, forested region that has many small lakes (not visible on this image) scattered throughout the boundaries of the park. The largest gray -looking feature north of the Peace Garden is Whitewater Lake. While most of the terrain is covered by large wheat fields, the Pembina River, including Pelican Lake is visible on the Canadian side of the border and the Souris River channel (thin dark linear feature southwest of the Peace Garden) can be traced across the North Dakota landscape.
