Glacier Park—Canadian Rockies
The Banff Springs Hotel commands a marvelous view of the Bow River Valley
A recent interchange agreement between
the Great Northern and Canadian
Pacific railroads has made it possible
for vacationists to visit two of the most
beautiful scenic sections of the Rocky
Mountains, namely, Glacier and Waterton
Lakes Parks and the Banff National Park,
without long detours and at much less
expense than formerly.
Under this agreement the tourist can
travel via the Great Northern to Glacier
National Park; then by bus through the
International Playground and north to Calgary, Alberta. At Calgary, passengers
from the east may travel either by bus or
Canadian Pacific train to Banff and Lake
Louise, while those coming from Spokane
and cities west of there must travel by
train. After the stay in the Canadian
Rockies the return journey is via the Canadian Pacific to the starting-point.
There are many variations of this tour.
The Canadian parks can be visited first if
so desired. Any of the Canadian Pacific
gateways, Winnipeg or Portal in the east
and Kingsgate or Vancouver in the west,
may be chosen. >
The route of this tour between the Canadian Rockies and the International Playground follows closely an old highway that
for many, many years has clung to the
eastern slopes of the Rockies. This trail,
known to some as the Travois Trail, was
well defined when the first white men
reached these mountains and it remained
in existence all through the fur trade days.
To the Indians, the free-trappers and the
fur-traders it was a natural route of north
and south travel, for the rocky defiles and
secluded valleys to the west offered ready
hiding-places in time of need, while the
buffalo-dotted plains to the east provided
ample sustenance for the party.
Many a famous fort and trading-post
was built in the vicinity of this trail. On
the north stood Old Bow Fort and Fort
Calgary; while farther south and grouped
near the International Boundary were a
number of smaller posts of which Fort McLeod, Fort Standoff and Fort Whoopup
were the best known.
The historic associations that still cling
to this old trail and the marvelous alpine
scenery of Glacier and Waterton Lakes
Parks and the Banff National Park make
this new tour one of the most unusual
and certainly the most scenic tour by
automobile and train to be had on the
North American continent. (vffiiSiSSffi
