Fargo-Monticello under construction

We went up to Lake Itasca the last week of June, and driving up 94, just to see the transmission, well, it was depressing to say the least.  There are towers up, foundations up, lay-down yards visible, heartbreaking…


Do you remember anything about these “H” frame structures without the cross-connector piece, maybe “II” frames, eh?  I thought it was all monopoles.

And this, oh my, look how close it is to those turkey barns!  How can that be?


Look how high they are over the tree line, the TALL tree line:




Part of the lay-down yard:



Home sweet home, office sweet office (they have internet in the Itasca campgrounds!)… right across from the lake.  PERFECT weather.




The water level is seriously low, much of the small bays and lakelettes are showing green growth where water was last time we were up there.
