Thompson Lookout in Creston BC Canada.
It sits immediately north of the US Border.
- In fact the southern half of the ridge you are looking at below is in the good old U S of A.

That is one continuous 5400' high 45.5 Km west facing ridge our Spokane chums are flying.
And yep. The white horizontal line is the USA Border. Image thanks to Tom Payne's http://xcplanner.appspot.com/

Prior to 9-11 the Acrophobia club http://www.members.shaw.ca/ahpgc/ had a Fly-In here every year where tasks went way south into the USA. A real blast.
- Arrangements were established with US Customs and Immigration. Cool eh? Long for those good old days again...
