The Torpy River can be seen flowing through a valley in the lower half of this orthorectified image. It is a tributary of the Fraser River, rising in the Northern Rockies and the McGregor Range, a subdivision of the McGregor Plateau, and forming the boundary between the Rockies and the McGregor Plateau.

The McGregor Plateau is a sub-plateau of the Fraser Plateau, the northernmost major subdivision of the Interior Plateau spanning the inland regions of the Pacific Northwest. It is located in British Columbia, Canada, to the east of the city of Prince George. The plateau is very mountainous in character and includes several large rivers.
