  STS085-501-133 Pembina River Basin, Manitoba, Canada August 1997
The Pembina River and at least three elongated, intermittent lakes, including Pelican and Swan Lakes, (dark features) are visible where the river winds its way in an easterly direction across the plains of southwestern Manitoba. Landmarks in the scene include a section of the International Peace Garden (large forested area along the southern edge of the picture), which straddles the Canada-U. S. border; Whitewater Lake (smaller, dark feature immediately north of the International Peace Garden); and the dark forested area north of the Pembina River is Spruce Woods Provincial Park. The lighter colored, uniform-looking terrain south of the forested park is an area of open sand dunes, known as Canada's Living Desert. The wildly meandering course of the eastward flowing Assiniboine River is also visible south of the sand dunes (Baldhills Park) and Spruce Woods Provincial Park. Most of the land that is suitable for agriculture is used for the production of spring wheat.
