the Painted Chasm, in Chasm Provincial Park, near Clinton, BC, you can
experience one of nature's wonders.
close of the Ice Age about 10,000 years ago, a stream fed by melting
ice cascaded over a falls forming this chasm by cutting into some of
the lava flows that helped to build the Fraser Plateau. Individual lava
flows are shown here by the horizontal layering. When the glacial ice
finally disappeared the flow of the meltwater stopped.
