Bibliography

The Chasm, located a short distance beyond the 59 Mile House was considered one of the "sights" on the Wagon Road. Here stages would stop to allow visitors the opportunity to view the 1000 foot deep, mile wide box canyon. It was referred to as the Painted Chasm because the mineral-filled rocks, exposed to the weather, created a huge range of coloured surfaces.
