Frozen Fraser River

    This is a scene we see daily on our trip to town.  It is the Fraser River.  The Fraser is British Columbia’s major waterway and drains most of the Province.  It begins about 100 km (60 miles) west of McBride, then flows in a NW direction to Prince George, where it makes a sharp turn southward, cutting through deep canyons, before finally settling down and emptying into the Pacific Ocean in Vancouver.  It is about 1,400 kms (850 miles) in length and drains 220,000-square-kilometers ( 85,000 sq. miles).  

    As you can see it freezes over every winter.
