Small Ferry Boat
We crossed a cold river in British Columbia on a small ferry boat designed to haul several cars
back and forth across the river. It was a quick trip, river was at most 100 yards across, but
apparently there was not a bridge anywhere close. Ferry was pulled back and forth across the
river by cables.
This was in 1999 around Kamloops, BC. I looked it up on the Internet and it is the McLure Ferry
on Highway 5 crossing the North Thompson River. Ferry capacity is 2 vehicles and 12 passengers max.
I remember that we had a very remote cabin booked north of Kamloops, this must have been on the
way to that cabin.
