My daughter and I went on a day trip today to one of the local attractions. As she says, we live in the town of Hope, which is just down the road from Hell's Gate. (The community of Spuzzum lies between.)
The broad Fraser River flows placidly to the sea -
after it recovers from being funnelled through a rocky chasm. Read all about it here:
We didn't go on the air-tram - that's for another day. So that means we didn't get to see the Skuzzy General Store that is on the other side. The bridge in the bottom photo is a walkway from the parking lot to the air-tram. We were going to go that way, but our dog, Chimo the Husky, refused. A passerby suggested it was perhaps because you can see thru the stairs - no backing. Anyway, we drove a little further down to a turn-around and parked right at the tram ticket office. Not a lot to see there...
The road to Hell's Gate goes through a number of short tunnels.
Before Hell's Gate we stopped at a former (and current, actually) gold-panning town called Yale. A biggish flea market there (and across the street was a junk-and-junk-food establishment). Note the "Fresh Bannock" sign. The confection at the bottom is my bannock, anointed with raspberry jam.
I have, of course, many other photos (another day!) of ridiculously scenic vistas, rocks, a small waterfall, historic buildings, etc. About a week's worth of posts, and we just skimmed thru the place, noting things to investigate more closely another time...and pull-off spots on the highway for photo ops, not utilized this Labor Day weekend with all the traffic.
But, for no good reason, a photo of a broken car mirror. Blue sky. I think the tan-colored blob must be me...
