PICTURESQUE MOTOR HIGHWAYS
LEAD TO MOUNTAIN PLAYGROUND
Field, B.C., where the traveller
alights for Emerald Lake, is a
foretaste of the joys awaiting you.
In the valley mouth between Mount
Stephen and Mount Burgess this
railroad town is a service centre.
From it roads lead to Lake Wapta,
Yoho Valley, Lake Louise and Banff.
The road to Emerald Lake includes
famous Snowpeak Avenue — more
than two miles of straight, level,
evergreen-bordered highway —
leading the eye to massive
snow-capped mountains.   On the
way a stop is made at Natural Bridge
where the bustling Kicking Horse
River has pierced solid rock.

CANADIAN ROCKIES HOLIDAY
TO YOUR OWN MEASURE
Emerald Lake is reached by a
well-kept mountain highway that
connects with the motor roads of the
Canadian Rockies.   The area is
supervised by the Royal Canadian
Mounted Police.
Trails, ideal for riding or hiking,
link Emerald Lake with many
beauty-spots.    Outings of varying
lengths may be planned, afoot,
astride a sturdy mountain pony, by
automobile or plastic-topped bus.
And, no matter what the day's
activity, at night great stone fire
places glow with welcome.
VARIETY OF ACTIVITIES
SATISFIES ALL  TASTES
A holiday at Emerald Lake can be
what you wish to make it.
Comfortably appointed modern
bedrooms are available in the main
chalet or in 26 cottages.   As a result
of this plan guests who like to make
new friends have every opportunity.
Those to whom a quiet holiday
appeals can enjoy the solitude of the
great outdoors and the privacy of
their own verandahs.
Cleverly sited at the water's edge,
the buildings command woodland,
lake and mountain vistas.

"TAME"  WILD-LIFE BECKONS
TO CAMERA ENTHUSIASTS
Besides the mountain scenery there are other
delights to enjoy during your stay.
"Wild" animals, used to the sight of man,
afraid of no sudden danger in this wild-life
sanctuary, are often seen.   Park wardens ask
you not to feed them — for your own sake.
Give them plenty of room, do not startle them
with sudden movements and you will have
many chances to "shoot" with your camera.
Look in the lakes for feeding moose, in the
woods for elk, caribou and mountain birds.
Rocky country is best for Big Horn sheep —
but these are scarce — and Hoary Marmots.
These latter, so inquisitive they will stare you
down, signal their presence with long piercing
whistles.    And on the trails keep ear and eye
alert for the perky "Whiskey Jack" who will
often perch on a branch almost within reach.
EXPLORE THE YOHO VALLEY
Whatever else you do while at
Emerald Lake plan to visit Takakkaw
Falls.   More than 1200 feet high
this high-spot of the Yoho Valley
can be reached by motor-road or
trail.   The drive is spectacular and
includes a "switchback" famous
in road-building annals.
For riders the trail to Twin Falls
provides a two-day outing with an
overnight stop at Twin Falls Chalet.
An alternate route enables return
by way of Takakkaw Falls and Yoho
Valley Lodge.
Twin Falls Riding, hiking, boating, fishing —
these are available at Emerald Lake
for the energetic — sharpened by
keen mountain air.   For the lazy
there is contemplation of mountain
scenery at its grandest, leisurely
walks along woodland trails, a
treasure trove of mountain wild flowers.
For every guest there are healthful, sunny
days and cool, sleep-compelling nights.
Ask the office to assist in planning
your exploration of the Canadian
Rockies.   Guides for fishing, hiking
or riding are available.   Daily motor
or bus tours over smooth, scenic roads.
