Locality type:
Group of Road Cuttings


There are four roadcuts along this road. I will not divide them but they should be specified in the photo i suppose.

One of these roadcuts is located 2.2 kilometers from highway 62 on Musclow-Greenview road & is on the left.

Another roadcut is 5.7 kilometers from highway 62 & is on both sides of the road..

The Quirk Lake locality is 10.5 kilometers on Musclow-Greenview from highway 62. It is just past Carr road & is on the right.
