Heading north on the RMR Fraser Discovery with a hazy sky account forest fires. A short tunnel at mile 168.39 and view of the slide /rock fall fencing that has been placed in various areas on the treacherous piece of terrain known on BC Rail as "Kelly Lake Hill". Most trains still have a track patrol running ahead of them despite the electronic fencing along the way. Crews must remain vigilant for errant rocks that intercede the track patrols and slide fences. On the left of this view is the Fraser River, a long long way down the hillside. All very scenic for the "paying passengers" riding this train, still a tense passage for the crews that negotiate this track on a daily basis.
