The Fraser River, named after explorer Simon Fraser, is the longest river within British Columbia, Canada, rising at Fraser Pass near Mount Robson in the Rocky Mountains and flowing for 1,375 km (870 mi), into the Strait of Georgia at the city of Vancouver.
This photo was taken from town of Hope in British Columbia, Canada, a pretty little town siting on a wide sweeping curve of the mighty Fraser River, guarding the entrance to the Fraser River Canyon, well known for its wooden sculptures/carvings. Hope is also a popular location to shoot films. More than a dozen of films were entirely or partially filmed here, including First Blood (1982), Shoot to Kill (1988), Hope Springs (2003), K2 (1992), Fire with Fire (1986), Yellow Dog (1994), White Fang II (1994), The Pledge (2001), The Stick Up (2003), Suspicious River (2004), Afghan Knights (2007), and Wind Chill (2007), etc
