This month and next afford travel- lers along the Trans Canada Highway through British Col- umbia's Fraser Canyon a rare- ly-equalled opportunity to view one of the world's great mael- stroms. The mighty 'Fraser River is in full flood, and wafer from all this vast catch basin is rouring through Hell's Gate with virtually unprecedented volume and violence. Canada's westernmost prov- ince has almost ten per cent of the entire fresh water run- off of the world, and when one considers that the Fraser River system drains roughly one- quarter of the province, it is hard to conceive of the gallon- age passing through the thirty- five-yard-wide constriction that ias been termed, aptly, Hell's late. The previous recorded high was 200 million gallons per minute current volume :ould be even higher. DELUGE UNLEASHED British Columbia experienced perhaps the heaviest overall snowfall in history last winter, and this, coupled with an un- believably late and sudden spring, is unleashing an im- mense deluge throughout mosl of the rivers of this mountain- ous province. Nowhere is this more evident than in the Fraser River system. The Fraser it self originates not far from Mount Robson, highest peak in ;he Canadian Rockies, on the Yellowhead Highway just of Jasper. A 'major tributary the Thompson, lias two source North Thompson starts just south of the source of the Fraser but flows southward rather lhan westward; the South Thompson system starts in the Monashee Mountain west of the Arrow Reservoir and flows through a chain lakes including mighty Shu swap, before joining the Nort Thompson at Kamloops. Anoth er major tributary of the Fras or is the Nechako, which drain much of the mountain and pla teau country west of Princ George, and joins ttie Fraser i the heart of that mid-Britis Columbia city. A natural outcropping on bot sides of the craggy canyon wa created Hell's Gate unknow years ago but the thought-1 just gazing thoughtfully dow Icssness or carelessness of man contributed to the violent spec-1 tacle, in 1913, when crews blast- ing a road bed for the Cana- dian Northern Railroad (now the Canadian National) dumped tons of rock into the channel immediately above the natural outcropping. Within a few years, it became apparent that he Fraser's priceless salmon un was being decimated by the dditional turbulence of Hell's jate, and much of the man- iade devastation was subse- uently removed. Then, in 1945, le International Pacific Sal- mon Fisheries Commission eol- aborated in the construction of n elaborate and fascinating ishways to enable the belea- gured salmon to get past the Jell's Gate. TRAMWAY The Trans Canada Highway lasses 500 feet above the river it tin's point, and for many 'ears only the very hardy have iraved the long, steep walk hat zig-zags its way down the anyon wall. However, in mid- summer last year, a twin aerial tramway was opened to the public affording at once an easy glide both down and up :he canyon wall and a specta- cular view of Hell's Gate from directly overhead. Substantial >aved parking has been pro- vided on both sides of the busy lighway, with a pedestrian overpass providing safety and uninterrupted traffic flow. Passengers can stay down at the bottom as long as they like strolling across the fisher- ies' footbridge, browsing through the souvenir shop, munching hamburgers in the coffee bar, touring the impres- sive fisheries displays or into the maelstrom. The retu fare is S2.00 for adults rates for children.
