JACKASS MOUNTAIN, FRASER CANYON
Trans-Canada Highway — British Columbia
Scenic beyond compare, the Trans-Canada Highway at Jackass Mountain contains one the many interesting stories of B.C.'s gold rush days.
Jackass Mountain--a memorial to a mule. wearied by its struggle over the steep, twisting Cariboo Road, one loaded mule reared, bucked, and fell to its death in the canyon. The long stream of freight animals closed their ranks and plodded onward to the distant Cariboo goldfields.17 SEP 1971 handwritten on back
