SPECTACULAR is a much over-used word but it is just the right one for this cable car ride into the Fraser Canyon.
The ride down gives scenic views up and down the river including the point it boils through a bottleneck where fishways have been created to help salmon past this difficult point.
Descending 500ft whets the appetite for what is to come because it is then possible to walk round and out over a bridge made from hollowed metal gratings which allows you to see right down to the raging river below.
This close to the rock walls it is possible to see fleeting shadows of salmon fighting their way up along the river's edge as well as the vicious pace of the river pitted against them.
Visitors can then walk on up a trail or return to buildings on the far side of the river which contain various history points detailing how the fishways were created.
It is ironic that man who created the solution had also created the original problem for salmon after a large rock slide caused by a Canadian Northern Railway construction fell into the river in 1914, narrowing the river's flow and increasing its power at that point.
All this and subsequent efforts to help salmon are detailed together with facts and figures of the area, gift shops, various eating points and even a "haunted" stove.
Definitely worth a visit but keep your eyes open for any coach parties arriving at the same time as you because this can cause delays queueing for the tram ride down into the canyon.
