Fraser Canyon

"Fraser canyon" is a landform for the Fraser River of 84Km it comes down rapidly through the narrow lane on between the Coast Mountains and the route tends to the interior plateau of British Columbia to the Fraser Valley. Commonly the word Fraser Canyon is taken from the Thompson canyon from Lytton to Ashcroft.

As they form the similar highway route with the people familiar with, it is actually calculated above Williams Lake, British Columbia at Soda Creek Canyon which is nearer to the town of same name. Since the canyon was formed in the Miocene period of 23.7-5.3 million years ago. Thus the river was cutting into the moving interior plateau.

The river flows on through the northern cariboo to fountain with the line of the huge Fraser fault. The river runs through north-south directions through to join at yalakom Fault, downstream towards the Lillooet. Lava Flow Exhibitions are also present in Fraser Canyon.

This canyon ranges up to 270Km north of Yale to the assembly of the Chilcotin River. The major transportation is done from the southern side of the coast to the interior from the river with the Canadian national, pacific railways and Trans Canada highway to its rock faces.

The archeological site documents have the existence of staulo people at mouth of the canyon, in the area from the early Holocene period of 8000-10000 years ago withdraw of Fraser Glacier. The archaeological cut is of more distant upriver Keatley Creek, near Pavilion, is considered as 8000 BP from the date of time. Thus the lake is filled with the canyon above Lillooet, by a drift of few miles south of the up to the present town.
