buffalo corral, famous gardens.   Nearby Lake Minnewanka, Mount Norquay's
chair lift, the "Hoodoos," beaver lodges and moose feeding in the lakes are
high spots on sightseeing drives.
Westward, the scenic drive to Lake Louise boasts such sights as "The
Hole   in   the  Wall,"   Johnson's  Canyon,   Mount   Eisenhower  and   the
spectacular climbing highway from the Bow Valley to Chateau Lake Louise, with
the wide wings of its southern exposure spread to trap the sun on
the broad  expanse of lawn  and gardens that march  down to the lake
shore.    Lake  Louise, fed by fabulous Victoria Glacier, reflects in  its jade green
waters well-named Little Beehive, Big Beehive, Mount Victoria, Mount
Lefroy,   The  Mitre,   and   Fairview  Mountain.    Sightseeing   trips  from

Pack some adjectives along with your holiday
garb when you head for the Canadian Rockies because you will need a good selection to describe
the beauties of Lake Louise. Pack some stout-soled
footwear, tweeds for hikes, riding gear and, of
course, a bathing suit. Pack your camera and an
exposure meter if you want the excellent results
obtainable in the clear mountain air. Pack field
guides on mountain wild flowers and birds to identify the many attractive species you will meet.
Pack evening clothes if you like, to complement
the spacious public rooms by night. Pack your
cares and worries, too — you'll lose them at first
sight of the majestic splendour of the mountains.

Top country for photographers
Are you lazy? Lake Louise is the spot for
you. It is easier to sit in the warm sunshine and do nothing at the edge of Lake
Louise than anywhere else in the world.
If you are lazier than that. Chateau Lake
Louise can still accommodate you in a
room with its own balcony. Even in the
evenings you can be lazy. Pick out a
comfortable chair or chesterfield in the
lounge after dinner, listen to the evening
concert and, while the strenuous enjoy
modern rhythms in the ballroom, contemplate the moonlit mystery of the lake,
Follow this prescription with sound sleep

Life can be baronial at Banff. The great fireplaces and comfortable jperiod
furniture of Mount Stephen Hall, Riverview Lounge and the Garden Lounge
remind you of a Scottish castle. Modern appointments remind you of home.
The ballroom, opening into a flower-filled conservatory, coaxes you to dance
the evening away. Shuffleboard on the Red Terrace, swimming—indoor or
outdoor pc-ol at your pleasure—tennis, putting, golf, enjoyment of the
gardens—these are close at hand. Sightseeing drives or motor launch trips
on the Bow River and Vermilion Lakes, bridle paths, hiking trails, picturesque
Banff town, bicycling and some fishing lead you farther afield. Throughout
Banff National Park, you may see deer, elk, moose, porcupine and an occasional bear. All these are unafraid in this game sanctuary but park wardens
warn you not to feed them for your own good. Wild animals are not wilfully
harmful but they don't know their own strength.
Six trans-continental trains serve the Banff-Lake Louise area every day. All
trains  are  met  by  hotel   porters.
