#449: View to the southeast from US Hwy. 71, looking at Mt. Nebo and the large gravel pit on the north side. Mt. Nebo is a kame, a depositional feature composed primarily of sand and gravel, formed when Wadena-lobe ice covered the area. The kame is about 125 feet higher than the surrounding landscape, forming a prominent feature in northwestern Todd County. Sand and gravel has been mined from this kame for approximately the past 75 years.
