BRITISH COLUMBIA - VIEW IN THE GORGE NEAR VICTORIA
The spot shown is a very favourite one with the dwellers
in Victoria for picnics and similar junketings. It lies about
two miles from the capital, on the Victoria Arm. The width
of the stream at the point shown is only about thirty feet.
Though the narrow aperture the water rushes with extreme violence.
At times, the tide is so strong as to render boating not only
difficult but absolutely dangerous, venturesome people sometimes
paying with their lives for their foolhardiness in braving
the angry torrent.
