Six Mile bend on the Fraser River at Fountain gorge north of Lillooet, BC.

This is my first uploaded Gigapan!!! (on a dial-up, no less!) It took 9hr. 40min to upload.

About this area: The Fountain area of the Fraser has been inhabited by the local natives (Xaxli'p First Nation) for more than 8000 years. It's also one of the hottest and driest parts of BC with temps reaching 45C in midsummer.
The railway line in the lower foreground is CN, formerly part of the PGE which snakes along the Fraser from Lillooet to Pavilion and then climbs the steep grades to Kelly Lake and Clinton.

    Because I'm currently on a dial-up, my Gigapans have been uploaded here at a reduced scale. This one is at 50% of the original, but it still shows a lot of detail.
