TTHE Pacific is the greatest and the last
of oceans—the greatest in extent, the
last to be discovered by the modern world
and to be made a theatre for maritime
history. Of all the lands bordering its far-
flung coast, British Columbia is in some
respects the most promising to the settler
as well as the most picturesquely varied
to the tourist.
ANDREW ALLERTON, General Superintendent,

i_ It was in 1745, when the French regime was
drawing towards a close in Quebec, that Michael
Novidskof sailed eastward in his moss-calked,
skin-sewn shallop in pursuit of sea otter till he
touched the antenna of a continent, in the Island
of Attu. Other Russian fur traders followed.
The whole slender, volcanic Aleutian chain gradually became known to them—flat, mist-drenched
islands, given over in the main to seals and sea
birds. But though Russia touched Alaska, she
turned back across the Pacific.
Meantime France was reconnoitering from the
east. La Verendrye crept across the vast prairies,
sighted the foothills, saw, perhaps, the looming
peaks beyond. Later, in 1 751, de Nivervilhb followed, made his way up the muddy waters of the
Saskatchewan, built Fort Lajonquiere and would
doubtless have ventured into the wonderland of
the Rockies but that tidings out of the east cialled
him to help Montcalm against the invading British. Thus France, too, came to the gateway of
the Land of Promise and passed by on the <j>ther
side. In 1774 the Indians of British Columbia
sighted their first vessel, a great-winged bird of
happy omen, they thought, bearing its Spanish
captain, Juan Perez, in search of new land in
which to plant a cross and raise gold. In 1769
the colonization of California began, but wap not
pressed northward, halcyon shores to the sjouth
being more attractive to the good friars J who
loved gardens as well as souls. Thus Spain iame
to British Columbia, traded in furs at its doorway and sailed away again.
Fate had reserved the conquest of tremendous
peaks, the settling of warm, secluded, sundrenched fruit valleys, for the only race fitted to
join them up to the rest of the world by rjail—
the Anglo-Saxon.
In 1 792 Captain Vancouver sailed from England
in the "Discovery/' rounded the Horn ancj. left
his name as a gift for a great island and a greater
city on the Canadian Coast. A year later Alexander Mackenzie, seasoned by terrific hardships
endured in descending his mighty godchild, the
Mackenzie River, in its rush to the Arctic, pushed
through the Rockies by the Peace River Pass and
stood beside the Pacific.   He was a partner in the
North West Company, great rival of the Hudson's
Bay Company, and northern British Columbia
soon became a kingdom ruled by a monarch, the
Scottish Chief Factor. Simon Fraser was another
Nor'wester, who ran the rapids of the river which
bears his name and reached the Pacific in 1806.
What with the rivalries of the Hudson's Bay, the Nor'-
westers and the subsequently formed Pacific Fur Company,
to say nothing of tribal warfare among the Indians, the
Coast in the early nineteenth century became a spectacular
spot. In '58 an additional element of lawless picturesque-
ness was stirred in by the advent of 30,000 goldseekers,
who rushed north from San Francisco bound for the rumor-
land around the Fraser and Thompson rivers. Just here
the British Government stepped in and made the future
province into a colony as the one means of anchoring it
to its native mountains.
In 1871 the Canadian Pacific was begun; eleven different
surveys across the mountains were patiently worked out,
only that ten of them might be ruthlessly cast aside. 11 was
not till November 7, 1885, that the last spike was driven
linking the Pacific Coast of Canada with the Atlantic.
Today the tourist may join the annual pilgrimage of
happy pleasure-seekers who visit Banff, may stand on some
conquered peak from which the endless mountain prospect
radiates four hundred miles to the Pacific, a thousand to
the Arctic, a thousand and more southward.
He may travel to matchless Lake Louise, where Nature
has composed her mountains, her glaciers, her forests, into
a picture as endlessly changing in light effect as it is forever fixed and satisfying in wonder of line and balance of
Seated in a comfortable observation chair or open car,
he may glide down the Kicking Horse Canyon, where, in
1883, Sir Sandford Fleming recorded that he and his
guides and his cayuses were "from five to eight hundred
feet high on a path of from ten to fifteen inches wide and
at some points almost obliterated, with slopes above and
below us so steep that a stone would roll into the torrent
in the abyss below."
Leaving the Rockies, the tourist may slide through the
Columbia Valley and up into the mighty Selkirks. He may
dip south to the pastoral charms of the enchanting Lake
Windermere district or into the orchards of the Okanagan
country; he may reach Vancouver city and take passage
across the Pacific. Or he may take a Canadian Pacific
steamer up the coast to marvellous Alaska, where volcano
and glacier are set beside each other and the fiord country
rivals Norway, where the salmon cannery beats the gold
mine and the fur seal grows fat and lusty in the protected
Finally he may come back again across the width of a
mighty  continent  by  different  ways  of   equal   comfort,
without   once  leaving   the   lines   of   what is the world's
greatest highway, the Canadian Pacific Railway.

J7ROM the roof garden of the Palliser Hotel at
Calgary, one can see the glistening peaks of
the Canadian Pacific Rockies sixty miles away.
Their call is irresistible—like a magnet they pull
the trains of eager travellers. For 500 miles the
Canadian Pacific Pailway follows the wild can-
yohs that the rivers have dug, brawling, glacier-
fed, about the feet of the giant peaks.
"THE main line of the Canadian Pacific traverses
or adjoins four of the magnificent national
parks of Canada—Rocky Mountains Park, the
chief centres of which are Banff and Lake Louise,
Yoho Park, centring at Field, Glacier Park, one
of the finest mountain-climbing regions of North
America, and Mount Revelstoke Park. These
national parks have every kind of inducement to
offer the nature-lover.
D'ANFF is the capital of Rocky Mountains Park,
which, with Yoho and Glacier parks, contains
some two hundred and twenty miles of carriage
road, with radiating trails innumerable. Here
the Canadian Pacific Railway has placed the most
beautifully situated and luxuriously comfortable
mountain hotel in the world, overlooking the
junction of the Bow and the Spray rivers. Within
easy reach are gentle climbs and gorgeous panoramas, the picturesque and brilliantly colored
terraces of the Hot Springs; together with stiff
and challenging ascents like that of Mount Edith
for the proved Alpinist, who very often makes
his headquarters with the Alpine Club of Canada,
on the slopes of Sulphur Mountain.
Buffalo, mountain sheep, mountain goat, and other
animals at Banff are a never-failing source of interest.
Excellent golf links have been laid out at Banff and
there are beautiful river trips.
There are numerous interesting spots in the vicinity,
all easily accessible by good carriage roads and bridle
paths. A short distance from Banff Springs Hotel are the
Bow Falls, a cataract of wonderful beauty; Tunnel Mountain, from which a splendid view of the valley is obtained,
and the Cave and Basin, a remarkable formation from    which gush natural sulphur springs. Within a radius of
three miles are the Hoodoos, natural concrete pillars of
various shapes and sizes, Cascade Mountain, Stoney Squaw
Mountain, the beautiful Vermilion Lakes, the animal paddocks and Sun Dance Canyon, a deep and curious cleft
in the mountain. At a distance of nine miles is Lake Minnewanka, a pretty sheet of water, sixteen miles long, extremely
deep and walled in by tremendous cliffs, and the home of
huge fighting trout. A wonderful river trip up the Bow
can be made by electric launch.
An interesting automobile run of about fourteen miles
brings you to Johnston Canyon, where an excellent trail
leads to a great waterfall. The Banff-Winder mere automobile road over the Vermilion Pass has now made accessible the exquisitely beautiful Marble Canyon. It is
expected that the Banff-Windermere road will be completed this summer, thus opening up a magnificent Alpine
country hitherto known only to the trapper and the hunter
through eighty miles of pass and canyon. At Lake Windermere there is a rustic bungalow camp with accommodation for fifty people. Lake Windermere can also be reached
by rail from Golden.
T AKE LOUISE bears the liquid music, the
^ soft color notes of its name, into the realjm of
the visible. Behind its turquoise mirror rise the
stark immensities of Mounts Lefroy and Victoria,
the latter "the big snow mountain above the Lake
of Little Fishes'' of which the wandering Stonies
used to tell. Here, on the margin of this most
perfect lake, the Canadian Pacific has placefd its
Chateau in one of those wonderful Alpine flower
gardens in which the Rockies abound. Yellow
violets and columbines, white anemones and
green orchids, make merry with the red-flowered
sheep laurel and the white-tufted Labrador tea.
Be he never so lazy, the tourist has something
to reward him in this gay garden backed with the
rich-toned lake and the milky green of the glacier.
Lake Agnes, "the Goats' Looking Glass," as the Indians
used to call it, is a wild tarn shut in by sombre cliffs, a
thousand feet above Lake Louise. Here the great white
anemone blooms by the late snowdrift and there is the
silence of eternity among the high hills. It is reached
from the hotel by an easy trail which also takes in the
lovely Mirror Lake. The trail continues to the Big Beehive,
or to the lookout on the Little Beehive, commanding a
magnificent panorama of lake, glacier and mountain.
It is a three-mile trip to Saddleback Mountain, which
affords an admirable view of the lovely Paradise Valley.
At a distance of about ten miles is Moraine Lake, situated
at the head of the valley of the Ten Peaks and reached
over  a good  carriage  road  recently  constructed.    Good
camping facilities are afforded on the shore of the lake in
the midst of scenes of surpassing beauty. Consolation
Lake, about three miles further by trail, provides good
trout fishing. The Victoria Glacier, a great palisade of
hanging snow, Abbot Pass, a deep canyon between Mounts
Victoria and Lefroy, O'Hara Lake, set amid scenes of wild
Alpine grandeur, Cataract Creek, Paradise Valley and the
Ptarmigan Lakes are among the notable spots well worthy
of a visit. The new Upper Glacier Trail to Victoria Glacier
is of exceptional interest and beauty.
CIX miles west of Lake Louise is the Great Divide, at
once the highest elevation of the Canadian Pacific, the
boundary between Alberta and British Columbia, and
the very backbone of the continent. Marked by a rustic
arch, a stream of water divides, by one of those freaks by
which Nature diverts herself, into two little brooks that
have vastly different fates. The waters that flow to the
east eventually reach the Atlantic Ocean; the rivulet that
runs west adds its mite to the volume of the Pacific.
From the Great Divide the railway begins to descend.
Between here and Field, a distance of fourteen miles, it
descends in fact nearly a quarter of a mile. Formerly this
was a most difficult track, the gradient being 4.5 per cent;
but by two wonderful tunnels, which form one of the most
notable engineering feats in the world, this difficulty has
been eliminated and the grade reduced to 2.2 per cent.
These are the famous "Spiral Tunnels" under Cathedral
Mountain and Mount Ogden. The line turns two complete circles, roughly a figure 8 in shape, passing under
itself twice and emerging over one hundred feet lower than
it entered.
T AKE WAPTA CAMP, a rustic bungalow
camp, has been located on a picturesque site
two miles west of the Great Divide for the convenience of those wishing to visit the Yoho
Valley and Lake O'Hara. It has accommodation
for fifty people, at moderate rates. The station
for the camp is Hector.
Camps have also been established in the Yoho Valley,
close to the Takakkaw Falls, and at Lake O'Hara, with
accommodation for ten people each.
HPHE beautiful Yoho Valley can be reached by
several routes — either by trail from Lake
Wapta Camp, by carriage road from Field (a
lovely drive or ride of eleven miles in each direction), by trail from Emerald Lake over Yoho
•Pass, or by trail from Field over Burgess Pass.
Page Six
Takakkaw Falls are formed by a single thread of water
dropping 1,200 feet into a still and mighty-treed valley.
Here a camp, with accommodation for ten people, will
give shelter for the night.
The Upper Yoho Valley can be visited by a trail which
continues past Laughing Falls and the great Wapta Glacier,
to the curious Twin Falls, whose divided waters unite in
one stream before reaching the depths below.
U*MERALD LAKE, as green as its name, is a
seven-mile carriage drive from Field, at the
end of which accommodation may be obtained
at the cosy Emerald Lake Chalet, which, with an
extension that will be completed this year, has
accommodation for seventy people. An attractive two-day riding trip can be made from
Emerald Lake Chalet, spending a night at Takakkaw Falls
Camp, and continuing next day up the Kicking Horse Pass
to Lake Wapta Camp.
Other pleasant excursions may be made to points of
interest within a short distance of Field, such as the Fossil
Beds, the Aerial Silver Mines, Natural Bridge, and the
Monarch Mine Cabins.
AT GOLDEN one reaches the Columbia River,
which here flows north until it turns at the
Big Bend for its southward flow to the Pacific
Ocean. Golden is the junction for a new branch
line of the Canadian Pacific Railway, which runs
between the Rockies and the Selkirk Mountains
and passes through highly picturesque scenery
past Lake Windermere to the Crowsnest line of
the Canadian Pacific Railway. The creeks which
open up the great Selkirk Range to the south of this valley
provide access to some of the most spectacular Alpine
scenery in North America, while the hunting and fishing
in season are also good.
At Lake Windermere, south of Golden, a bungalow
summer camp is situated on the shores of one of the
loveliest warm-water lakes in British Columbia, with every
facility for bathing, boating, riding and motoring in a
country of exceptional beauty.
T JNTIL the end of the year 1916 the railway
climbed over the top of Rogers Pass through
a gorge, subject in winter to heavy snowslides
against which the track was protected by four
miles of snowsheds. These are now evaded by
the double-track Connaught Tunnel, the longest   tunnel in North America, which pierces its way
through Mount Macdonald and reappears in the
Illecillewaet Valley below Mount Sir Donald and
the Illecillewaet and Asulkan glaciers. From portal to
portal this tunnel measures five miles, but so straight is
the line that the exits are never out of sight.
About a mile from the western exit is Glacier Hotel,
built by the Canadian Pacific Railway for the convenience
of Alpine climbers and others who wish to explore the trails
and visit the lakes, glaciers and caves of this wonderful
Alpine region. Almost at the back door of the hotel is the
great Illecillewaet Glacier. Swiss guides and sure-footed
ponies are located at the hotel for the benefit of those who
wish to climb the glaciers and mountains or ride the
trails to heights commanding magnificent panoramas.
Leading from the hotel a good trail follows the turbulent
course of the Illecillewaet River to the Great Illecillewaet
Glacier and Valley; other trails branch off in all directions,
inviting and leading the mountain climber, explorer and
lover of Nature to scenes of marvellous grandeur and
enchanting beauty. Glacier Crest, Lake Marion and
Observation Point are among the shorter and easier ascents.
Mount Abbott is a day's climb, but not a difficult one.
From its summit an exceptionally fine view is obtained of
the Asulkan Valley. Easy trails also lead up to the summits
of Eagle Peak and Mount Avalanche. The ascent of Mount
Sir Donald is more difficult, but with the assistance of
experienced guides may readily be accomplished.
An excellent trail leads to the Asulkan Glacier, through
scenes of Alpine splendour, and the recently discovered
Caves of Nakimu are only distant about seven miles from
Glacier House by a carriage road and bridle path. These
wonderful caverns, said to be larger than the Mammoth
Caves of Kentucky, have been formed by the action of
water for ages upon the solid rocks, and form a series of
chambers with large entrances, polished rock ceilings and
walls which sparkle with quartz crystals and reflect myriads
of miniature lights from the darkness.
'T'HE Company's own Swiss guides are stationed
at  Lake  Louise  and  Glacier,   and  may  be
engaged through the managers of the Canadian
Pacific Railway hotels.
From Glacier, the route descending the western slope
of the Selkirks follows the valley of the Illecillewaet through
Albert Canyon, a marvellous gorge of great depth and
startling fascination. Revelstoke is an important centre,
from which there is water communication with the rich
Kootenay and Boundary districts. A motor road is under
construction to the top of Mount Revelstoke, which has
been converted into a national park and is attracting
increasing numbers of summer visitors.
AT SICAMOUS an excellent hotel is operated
by the Canadian Pacific Railway, and is
especially convenient either for those who wish
to stop off somewhere and make the all-daylight
trip through the Canadian Pacific Rockies, or for
those who are visiting the fertile fruit-growing
Okanagan Valley for which this is the junction.
l^AMLOOPS, the junction of the North and
A^ South Thompson rivers, is the beginning of
the magnificent canyon country through which
we shall travel virtually all the way to Vancouver.
The canyons are second only to the Rockies in
spectacular scenery, and the traveller is well
repaid if he will stay overnight at Sicamous so
that he can travel them in daylight. The mountains draw together as the train winds along
ledges cut on their face; tunnels penetrate the
headlands, lofty bridges span the ravines, and
below rushes the river.
At Lytton the canyon widens to admit the Fraser, the
largest river of British Columbia, which comes down from
the north between two great lines of mountain peaks, and
whose turbid flood soon absorbs the bright green waters
of the Thompson. The scenery grows wilder than ever.
The great river is forced between vertical walls of black
rock, where, repeatedly thrown back upon itself by opposing cliffs, it madly foams and roars. North Bend makes
a desirable stopping place for those who wish to see more
of the Fraser. Ten miles below is the famous "Hell's
Gate," where two jutting promontories suddenly compress
the river and force it to escape in a roaring cataract through
a bottle-necked outlet. The railway follows the canyon
at often a considerable height above the river bank; the
track, hewn from solid rock, not only crosses from side to
side in the canyon, but also tunnels through great rock
spans. Presently the canyon widens out, and we reach a
meadow-like country through which we roll to Vancouver.
TP\IVERGING from the main line of the Cana-
^^^ dian Pacific at Medicine Hat, an attractive
alternative route, between Medicine Hat and
Revelstoke, is offered via the Crowsnest Pass Route,
affording a most delightful steamer trip on the Kootenay
River from Kootenay Landing to Nelson, continuing by
rail to West Robson, from which point another steamer
trip may be enjoyed through the beautiful Arrow Lakes
Page Ten
to Arrowhead,  joining  the main line at Revelstoke for
continuance of trip to Vancouver.
A new route passing through scenery of exceptional
beauty takes the traveller from Nelson, via Grand Forks
and Penticton and the orchard districts of the Okanagan
Valley, over the Kettle Valley Railway, rejoining the main
line at Hope. Grand Forks is the gateway to the Boundary
mining district, and the centre of a fertile apple country.
The Coquihalla Valley from Summit to Hope provides
wonderful fishing.
CPOKANE, capital of "the Inland Empire," is
an important financial and commercial city,
with huge smelters, mines, waterfalls, power plants, and
an exceedingly prosperous agricultural territory within its
sphere. From it also can be easily reached some very
delightful scenery.
'T'HE terminal of the Canadian Pacific's transcontinental rail lines and its trans-Pacific
steamship routes, is the largest commercial centre
in British Columbia, and has an excellent harbor nearly
landlocked and fully sheltered. It faces a beautiful range
of mountains. Two peaks, silhouetted against the sky,
remarkably resembling two couchant lions, are visible
from almost any point in the city or on the harbor, which
has appropriately been termed "The Lion's Gate."
In and around Vancouver are immense lumber and
shingle mills. Mining, lumbering, farming, shipping, and
shipbuilding form the bulwark of the city's phenomenal
growth and prosperity.
All kinds of water sports are possible at Vancouver,
and are encouraged through a mild climate and extensive
bodies of water. There are many bathing beaches, parks,
boulevards, automobile roads and paved streets. Stanley
Park, one of the largest natural parks in the world, is
excellently maintained by the city.
The Hotel Vancouver, operated by the Canadian Pacific,
is second to none on the Pacific Coast, is conveniently
located and has a high reputation for the excellence of its
service. Wonderful views can be had from the roof of this
great hotel.   Vancouver has three admirable golf courses.
It is only a short run by Canadian Pacific Railway
steamer to Nanaimo, where the Esquimalt & Nanaimo
Railway connects with the beauty spots of Vancouver
From Vancouver Canadian Pacific Empress steamships
cross the Pacific to Japan, China, and the Philippines.
The two new liners, "Empress of Scotland" and "Empress
of Australia," will also call at Honolulu. The Canadian
Australasian line runs regularly from Vancouver to Honolulu, Suva, (Fiji), New Zealand and Australia.    PRINCESS STEAMERS BETWEEN
'THE short but interesting trip on Puget Sound
should not be omitted from the itinerary. If
requested when purchasing, it will be included
in through tickets without additional charge. (See route
No. 1, on map.)
The Company's Princess steamers, operating on this
route, are the fastest and best equipped in the Pacific
coastwise trade.
^HARMINGLY situated on Vancouver Island,
overlooking the straits of Juan de Fuca,
Victoria drinks in the sunshine and smiles at the
traveller. It is distinctly a home city, with fine roads and
beautiful gardens, although its enterprising business district, composed of imposing stores and tall office buildings,
speaks of a rich commerce drawn from a territory full of
forest, mineral and agricultural resources. Victoria's
beauty lies in her residential districts, her boulevards, her
parks and her public buildings. The Parliament Buildings
of British Columbia rank among the handsomest in
The Empress Hotel, another of the chain of Canadian
Pacific institutions, gives the guest attention and service
equalled only by the best in the land. It overlobks the
inner harbor and is within a stone's throw of the Parliament Buildings. Golf facilities on three fine coursep can be
arranged for visitors to the hotel.
From Victoria delightful excursions may be made into
the interior of Vancouver Island, either by automobile or
by the Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway. The Malahat
Drive is a luxuriously smooth and picturesque motor road.
Excellent hotels are to be found at Shawnigan Lake and
Qualicum Beach and a delightful little chalet inn at Cameron Lake. Mount Arrowsmith proves one of the best
climbs and Qualicum Beach has a good sporting golf
course. There is no better fishing on the Pacific Coast
than that which one finds on the Campbell River, reached
by motor from Courtenay, the northern terminus of the
Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway. The immense Douglas
fir forests on this beautiful island and the balmy climate
make it wonderfully attractive to the tourist.
AT VANCOUVER, B. C, the Canadian Pacific
'** Railway  connects with the Great  Northern
Railway for Bellingham, Burlington, Everett and
This is an alternative route to Seattle and points south,
but tickets reading by rail will not be good via steamship,
or vice versa, between Vancouver and Seattle. (Route
No. 2, all rail.)
CPLENDIDLY located on Puget Sound, moun-
S-* tain-girt and fringed with lakes, Seattle is the
metropolis of the district she dominates. Situated on
seven hills, many of which have been greatly altered by
means of the steam shovel and the hydraulic plant to
make highways for traffic, Seattle overlooks a beautiful
The gold fields of Alaska filter their treasure through
her industries and her stores. The lumber camps and the
farms of Washington add to her prosperity. The tallest
of her buildings is forty-two stories, exceeded only by
those of New York City.
'T'ACOMA, the southernmost of the quartette of
North Pacific cities that cluster along the Gulf
of Georgia and Puget Sound, stands on a bluff at the head
of deep water navigation on the Sound, and is connected
with Seattle by excellent motor roads as well as by train.
From it is a comparatively short journey to Mount Rainier
and the Rainier National Park.
PORTLAND, Oregon, famous for its roses, is
so located as to permit trips of widely diverse
nature. The steamer trip up the Columbia River into the
Cascade Mountains is one of the most interesting. The
Columbia Highway is a motor road leading along the
bluffs overlooking the Columbia.
The ascent of Mount Hood requires only three or four
days from Portland for the entire trip.
DASSENGERS en route to California have the
choice of either an overland trip or a sea voyage from North Pacific Coast points. From
Portland to San Francisco the picturesque Shasta
Route of the Southern Pacific, the Pacific Steamship
Company, or the San Francisco & Portland Steamship
Company, may be used; from Victoria or Seattle steamers
of the Pacific Steamship Company maintain a regular
service to San Francisco and Wilmington (port for Los
ETROM Vancouver, B. C, to Skagway, Alaska,
is a thousand miles through the entrancing
Inland Channel, winding between islands and the
mainland as through a fairyland. The journey
is made in the palatial, yacht-like Princess
steamers of the Canadian Pacific Railway.

Ten days is required for the double journey to and
from this land of romance. The tree-clad passage of
Seymour's Narrows, Alert Bay, with its avenue of Totem
poles, and the picturesque Indian cedar lodges, the Indian
basket weavers of Ketchikan, the salmon fishing fleets
and canneries, are but a few of the scenes that enchant
the traveller.
From Ketchikan the way leads on through the Wrangel
Narrows, mile after mile of a winding way through Paradise.
Beyond the Narrows lies Juneau, the capital of Alaska,
on Gastineau Channel. Here are first-class hotels and
restaurants. One can go by automobile right to the face
of a glacier, the return trip taking about three and one-
half hours.
And, then, eight hours north, a wide bay leads on to
the last passage through the mountains, which grow ever
steeper and more narrowing till the sands of Skagway are
reached beneath a sheer precipice.
Skagway, once the wildest, wickedest town in the world,
is now a model of propriety. Beyond still lies much of
romance, reached over the White Pass & Yukon Route.
A short climb up the steep hill of the Pass, and the train
has reached the summit, and indeed one seems to be at
the very roof of the world. From here one descends to
White Horse, whence steamer can be taken down the
Yukon River to Dawson.
CAN FRANCISCO is the nucleus of a metro-
politan district composed of a cluster of cities
on the Bay. She possesses over 800 miles of streets and
300 miles of street railway.
She revels in aquatic sports of all kinds, which are made
possible at all times of the year because of an equable
clima|e. History, too, has been kind to this city, leaving
relics of early Spanish settlements which will ever be sights
of interest.
Parks, elaborate and well designed, are thronged with
people. The largest, Golden Gate Park, containing 1,013
acres, is a veritable fairyland of loveliness. The cafes, of
which there are hundreds, are famed for their Bohemian
life and their good cooking.
T OS ANGELES gladdens the eye with its
twenty-three public parks, containing 3,897
acres of lawns, flowers, hills, trees and lakes. The architecture is varied and suggests the different parts of the
world from which its residents have come. Famous for its
beautiful homes, lovely gardens and fine hotels, Los Angeles
is one of the most attractive cities in the United States.
The careless smoker on an idle trail,
The smouldering camp fire and a vagrant breeze,
Make all your ancient pride of what avail,
You sad grey ghosts that once were stately trees?  PACIFIC     COAST     TOURS

The Canadian Pacific Rockies comprise some of Nature's
most gigantic works. In many mountainous regions the
chief peaks spring from such high plateaus that, although
they are actually a very considerable height above sea
level, their height is not very impressive to the traveller.
That this is not so in the Canadian Pacific Rockies is
evident from the following tables, which show the altitudes of the principal mountains seen by the traveller
from the train or at the most popular mountain resorts—
altitudes not only in relation to sea level, but also to the
valleys at their base.
