The Columbia Valley Region / Rocky Mountain Trench
has a long straight valley, with one highway running north and
south almost to the US Border.
The population is sparse in most areas, largely with cleared farm land. Therefore the XC potential is good, the total distance on the great circle is terrific.
Out and returns or triangular flights are common. The many different sites and spectacular scenery make for the most pleasant flying imaginable.
