Down By The River
Photograph - Photography
Looking down the South Thompson River using camera motion. The Thompson River is the largest tributary of the Fraser River,flowing through the south-central portion of British Columbia, Canada. The Thompson River has two main branches called the South Thompson and the North Thompson.
During low water levels, the river is approximately 100 m wide and is 200-300 m wide during floods. The river flows down a gentle gradient (1 m per 10 km) through a relatively broad valley. The valley bottom is about 1 km wide, with rounded hills on either side, and in many cases bounded by 50 m high glaciolacustrine silt bluffs. Some unusual herptiles occurring in the site are Great Basin Spadefoot Toad, and Western Rattlesnake, both restricted in Canada to the Thompson and Okanagan Valleys. The river is also a major migration corridor for Chinook, Sockeye, Coho and Pink Salmon.
