Pacificorp 69kV & 230kV - Butte County, ID
Many of the "yucked" poles you see on the 69kV line here were part of the original line that was constructed in the 1910s. The line has been rebuilt several times since.

There are 230kV structures like that in ND - not sure whose as they appear in MDU's, Xcel's and OTP's systems.

I've run into them in Maine and southeastern Canada as well. Seems to be a common, "tried and true" design. Got some great shots of some of them in Nova Scotia.
