1964 Moses Lake Sugar Beet View

The caption of this one says these beets are being loaded at the U&I sugar plant in Moses Lake, but I'm having a hard time placing the location based on the background hills. Anyone care to venture a guess?

Well, they were certainly headed to U&I at Scalley...

Not too familiar with potential MILW loading sites.

GN had sites at Winchester, Quincy, and Ephrata that I know about, and the latter two have some sort of topographic features nearby.

For the NP, given the topography between Wheeler and Connell, not much springs to mind. Perhaps Cunningham, north of Connell, or further afield (I don't recall off the top of my head when the Toppenish U&I plant closed down so perhaps it was traffic from that direction)?
