As Canadians, most of us take the simple wonders of our countries natural beauty for granted. This photo is taken near a small village in which I once lived. Lytton, BC. Lytton is located about 260 kms northeast of Vancouver along the Trans-Canada Highway. Where I once lived. To cross the river, you use a ferry, this ferry only holds 4 cars and about 10 walking passengers and it’s powered by an old fashioned pulley system.
It’s where the cleaner waters of the Thompson River join up with the muddy waters of the Fraser River. Or a great place to go panning for gold, and white water river rafting. Lytton is also considered the hot spot of Canada. Temperatures in the summer averaged 40°C. Going outside without shoes was not an option.
This small wonder within our Canadian borders is shared with few notable others around the world including:
• Rhone and Arve Rivers in Geneva, Switzerland
• Ilz, Danube and Inn Rivers in Passau, Germany
• Ohio and Mississippi Rivers at Cairo, IL, USA
• Jialing and Yangtze Rivers in Chongqing, China
• Rio Negro and Rio Solimoes near Manaus, Brazil
• Green and Colorado Rivers in Canyonland National Park, Utah, USA
• Alaknanda and Bhagirathi Rivers in Devprayag, India
• Mosel and Rhine Rivers in Koblenz, Germany
• Drava and Danuve Rivers near Osijeck, Croatia
