Sections

I took this aerial photograph in the winter time. It shows clearly the sections of land on the Canadian Prairies. It also shows the winding Red River flowing along the flatland with trees on its bank. You can also see that the clouds are reflected in the snow below. 

According to the Library Archives of Canada speaking about Land Grants of Western Canada, “Sections are divided into four quarters or into sixteen legal sub-divisions. They are numbered from 1 to 37. Each section was approximately one square mile, 640 acres, divided into quarters of 160 acres.” Land is divided differently in Western Canada as opposed to Eastern Canada. 

Good news – I know it is summer but only 4 more months until snow! So, enjoy the sunshine and heat in the meantime!
