Max Jacquiard - Jackass Mountain

Historically, one of the major obstacles to travel through the Fraser Canyon was the 6600 foot
mountain on the east side of the river, some 16 miles north of Boston Bar. The Cariboo Wagon
Road was forced to climb over much of it, as the mountainside falls steeply to the river. In the
1880's, the Canadian Pacific Railway chose the west bank of the river, ( to avoid it).
Thirty years
later the Canadian Northern Pacific had little choice but to carve their way across the avalanche
prone rockface seen here.

In this scene from the 1950's, an eastbound passenger train crosses the 319 ft. Skow Wash
Creek Bridge. A C.N.R. freight train threads its way through a series of tunnels, rocksheds
and bridges on the west face of Jackass Mountain which obviously derived its name from
the mules that hauled tons of freight over it in the 19th century. None of this is visible
from today's highway which roughly follows the old wagon road.
