1st Place in the "Working by The River" contest.
A foggy morning on the river. The McLure Ferry is a toll free cable ferry across the North Thompson River in British Columbia. It is situated about 43 kilometres (27 mi) north of Kamloops. It carries a maximum of 2 cars and 12 passengers at a time.
Technically, the ferry is a reaction ferry, which is propelled by the current of the water. An overhead cable is suspended from towers anchored on either bank of the river, and a "traveller" is installed on the cable. The ferry is attached to the traveller by a bridle cable. To operate the ferry, rudders are used to ensure that the pontoons are angled into the current, causing the force of the current to move the ferry across the river.
