This town is on the Fraser River, in the Cascade Mountains.

Rock hounds can go gold panning - or just looking for interesting minerals.
If you don't know how to fish, ask about the "reel" fishing school here and learn all about fly-fishing for steelhead, salmon and sturgeon.
If you'll be here in August, check out the annual Fraser River Barrel Race for a real taste of the area. Barrels are tossed in upriver and come floating down in a froth of white water.
