Extracting Cross Sections help

I have an alignment going up the center of a draw.  I'd like to extract cross sections of this alignment and existing ground.  What is a good way to do this? 

 

I don't do cross sections very often, so when I need one, I draw a second alignment perpendicular to the first and profile that alignment to give me a bare bones cross section.  I'd like to do these cross sections on a given interval, and at every change in direction.  How should I go about it? 

 

Thanks.

My method....

 

I chose these from the menu bar, So be sure to have it turned on.

 

Create a profile 1st.

Sections>Create Sample Lines

Sections>Create Section View

 

Hopefully you have a Style created.

 

Good Luck,

 

Bo

In the create sample lines command there are options to create by station; where you click the location or type the station, or to create by range; where you set the start point, end point and the interval.
