Pacificorp 69kV & 230kV - Butte County, ID
Here's an old survivor from the original 69 kV line that occupied this right-of-way, long before the current line was put up. Note the wooden ridge pin mounted in the center of the pole top, and the wood blocks between the crossarms. This is VERY old construction.

This pole is the only one dating back to the original line that I could find in this section of ROW--the whole line was reconductored with aluminum a while back, and many poles recently got "yucked" with silicone post insulators.
