Niger River, Bale River Reservoir T3

Two low oblique views looking southwest show the Niger River as
it leaves the Loma Mountains and begins its course eastward to
the inland delta region. The Bales River Reservoir, a new reser-
voir completed within the last decade, is visible on both views.
The city of Bamako, Mali (1) can be seen at the right center of
the bottom photograph. (61C-42-0044, 0045, 51D-32-057)
