This is the Stein River, flowing out to the Fraser from the Stein Valley Provincial Park....which sounds like an amazing place. 50 species of mammals, no road access, hiking only. Also one of the largest native pictograph sites in Canada.
Apparently we are going to be ferried across the raging Fraser on this orange tugboat. Hmmmm. No wonder we didn't see anyone else on this road. The little spool of cable on the rickety yellow stand thingy is giving me sooooo much confidence in this whole enterprise.
The ferry looks like its sinking. Not a lot of freeboard there! The ferry dudes look a bit too relaxed for my liking.
If it all goes to hell at this point, we can attempt an Evil Kneivel style self rescue....
I'll post more pics in the coming days......so, check back!
