For more than a century, the Fraser River has been one of the most travelled highways leading into British Columbia's interior. Without it, BC wouldn't exist as it does today. It's a thriving, working watercourse, nothing like the more domesticated rivers and lakes you'll find in southern Ontario - you can find everything from corralled logs waiting for pickup to enormous floating bins of presumably mine-related material somewhere along its course.
Nevertheless, it's still a bit of an adjustment to be walking down Fourth Street toward the SkyTrain and look ahead only to see a tug like General Jackson go sailing by.
