Continuing eastward along Highway 6
in British Columbia's Kootenay region,
you come to the Arrow Lakes district.
The Arrow Lakes are actually part
of the Columbia River.
Riding the ferry from Needles to Fauquier
across the Lower Arrow Lake,
you can see the
on the west side and the Selkirk Mountains on the
east. Stunning actually.
Steeped in history, the area offers
up many tales and mysteries.
The cemetery is the only thing that is left of Needles.
The ferry has been operating since
1913 and the original was built by
local farmers using old car parts.
A map of the area
can be viewed here.
This cable ferry ride is free.
