%jers,   rugged    o . .*«      »» .rents*
canyons, lakes like vast sapphires and amethysts set in the
tr-e-clad mountains-—-these have been f|ung together in un-
i • fusion on a scale which Europe has never known.
From the roof garden of the Hotel Palliser, in Calgary, you
can see the foothills of the Rockies—dull blue, with shining
peaks against the horizon. As the train glides westward up
the long transverse valleys—old grooves down which the
spern . ■'■.. *. came from the higher mountains-—the prospect
H   ;ws more awe-in* very mile, till the train leaves
rails for the real Rockies—peaks that touch heaven
for coldness.
The cv is intense in the foregrounds; filled with soft
suggestion, with u witchery of semi-tona! shade, as
the prospect dips and fades away from you. The skies are
raw blue, the snow on the summits is whiter than sea-foam*
whiter th;*.. m tier cloud, white with a glistening untouched
whiteness that cannot be named.
The still valleys are full of jade pine trees that fade into
.amethyst and pearl distances. The spray of a 300-foot
cataract is like spun glass. The huge bulk of a tireless and
;-'" 5   en.    The rocks are of every shade
and subth at the palette of the First Artist could
produce. And the perspective effects are like nothing that
can be caught with the camera, or even splashed on canvas.
Here in this wonder world, this bit of the raw glacial era
let down into neat *. 'iorth America, the Canadian
Government has preserved four National Parks which dwarf
into  insi .   any  other  parks in the world.    There is
Rocky Mountain;- i"y:;lz; w v.. ;.■■.■ , ..■ ■-■■-. ;t--: rs h/': Banff; there is
Yoho Park, reached from 3F -   i ;tke; there is
Glacier Park, on the slopes of the Selkirk N I ins, farther
kg the Columbia Valley.
Altogether there are nearly 220 miles of the most wonderful
carriage roads in the world; there are pony trails innumerable
where you can see, between straight pine trunks, blue valleys
that yawn to mid-most depths; and there are automobile
roads in being or under construction, such as the Highway
of the Great Divide, from Banff, over Vermilion Pass by
way of the Sinclair Canyon to the Lake' Windermere District
of the Columbia Valley, The Dominion Government is thus
opening up spectacular country which hitherto has been less
accessible to the regular tourist.
There are few achievements in history to parallel the laying
of the Canadian Pacific steel across untouched wilderness and
prairie to Calgary (which a;>, .m's pillar
when the road tapped the plain) and from Calgary to the coast
over the Kicking Horse and through the Connaught Tunnel.
Ths track was laid despite almost insuperable engineering
difficulties, and has undergone one improvement after another
■ever since.
In the old days the -Royal train containing the present
King of England as a p r was hauled from Field to
1 I {h the Kicking Horse Pass by five huge loco
motives, Today that old 43 grade has been reduced, by
means of tunnels, to 2,2 per cent,
1
These "Spiral Tunnels** form one of the most notable
engineering feats in existence. From the east the track
* ms the first tunnel under Cathedral Mountain, 3,255 feet
in length, and after turning a complete circle and passing
under itself, emerges into daylight 54 feet lower. The track
I; n turns easterly and, crossing the river, enters the second
tunnel, 2,291 feet long, under Mount Ogden, Again turning
a complete circle and passing under itself, it comes out 50
feet lower and continues to Field. The traveller can therefore
witness the strange phenomenon of a railroad traversing the
valley by three lines at different elevations, crossing and
'recrossing the river by four bridges. Two engines on the
easy grade thus attained can do the sa iu- *« > i        M to
call for four.
Until the end of 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-
■ c;k Connaught Tunnel, the longest railway tunnel in
America, which pierces its way through Mount Macdonald,
From portal to portal this tunnel measures exactly five miles
in length, but so straight is the line that the exits are never
out of sight,
So much for what the traveler sees en route. The stopping
places are even more unique than the main-line sights.    ■
Banff, Lake Louise, Emerald Lake, Glacier, Sicamous—
these have their hotels whose windows open on fairyland,
where music or other entertainment helps to pass the evening
; .' <x a glorious day, Banff has an excellent golf course near
the hotel, with an unrivalled scenic setting, Fishing, hunting, climbing, riding, driving, exploring, Alpine flower gathering, Wonder-photo taking—these are the ''frill'* doings in the
Rockies, The biggest and most solid pleasure is just living™—
living where the air has never been contaminated with soot,
where you can'go from summer to snow any time you want
to, where you don't need any alarm clock to get you up, any
cordial to put you to sleep, any dinner bell to tell you when
it's time to eat.
The dining room of the Banff Hotel seats 600 guests at a
time, and the cuisine is the Canadian Pacific standard—
to say which is to say all. The Hot Springs provide for
ideal swimming even on the coolest day, the Zoo is perennially
interesting, the boating and fishing will live in the memory
of everyone who tries them.
The Chateau Lake Louise, that smiles at you from the
dining car menu before you get to a .- *
v L-n you arrive. Whatever the visitor hits or misses, he
must arrange* to stay over at Emerald Lake. Never were
there such carriage drives, such pony trails, such two and
three-day trips into the impenetrable silences. The chalet
at Emerald Lake, seven miles distant from Field, is always
ready with a real mountain welcome,'
Nothing could be a more unique experience than to take
the two-day ride via Yoho Pass and thence the high line trail
to Twin Falls, When the trail bends north toward the Falls,
you climb into another world; Across, on a sky-high meadow,
mountain goats browse on the close grass that is the sole form
of verdure at that altitude,    You pass over the torn and
Page Two ca;:,~:: :ir;;: :c: :::::s
chiselled path of a primeval glacier, like a vast, dry torrent
bed, A marmot whistles eerily, and perhaps you catch a
sight of his rock-grey head against the door of his house.
Now and then a porcupine scuttles quillfully ahead of you.
Strange birds flare across the snow-silences, as sudden as a
en word.
The Twin Falls themselves are two huge roaring curtains
of spray, their feet hidden in jv c-t'.al mist that the sunshine
turns into rainbow dust,
The trail bends homeward here. You pass, solemn little
emerald lakes in the nests of old cliff glaciers; you reach
Laughing Falls in eight miles; and later sight the never-to-
be-forgotten silver thread of Takakkaw.
The Crows Nest Route of the Canadian Pacific is a postscript, crossing the Rockies farther south than the main
line. But many folks think that it lives up to postscript
traditions by carrying some of the most important information. The visitor who would fully and faithfully see Rocky-
land should go by way of Banff and Lake Louise, on the
main line, then dip southward via Golden and the Kootenay
Central Railway, or via Revelstoke and the Arrow lakes to the
Kootenays, or by the Okanagan Valley or the new Kettle
•■    Railway to Sou*'      * * ~e are
wonderfully beautiful waters and mountains all the way.
At Lakf rmere, south of Golden, a log cabin camp
will be opened this summer on ) bores of one of the
loveliest warm water lakes in Br: - < jlumbia, with every
facility for bathing, boating, riding and. motoring in a country
of exceptional beauty. , '
The Kettle Valley Railway is the yo** ' on the
C  -iudian Pacific tree.    It opens up the cm     . •,-, I    :«
country of the Okanagan.

Pi ge Three BANFF
SITUATED in the heart of the Rocky  Mountains Park
of Canada,  a great national playground  covering   an
area of over 2,750 square miles and plentifully supplied
with, trails in every direction.
At Banff the Canadian Pacific has erected a first-class
mountain hotel—the Banff Springs Hotel—with dining room
capable of seating 600 people at one time. (Open May 15 to
September 30.)
SWIMMING
Excellent swimming in warm sulphur water is afforded at
the Hot Sulphur Springs, the Cave and Basin Bath House,
and at the Banff Springs Hotel. The first-named, situated
on the wooded slopes of Sulphur Mountain, at an altitude
of 5,500 feet, is accessible by an excellent road from the Bow
River bridge (2% miles) or by trail from the Banff Springs
Hotel The Cave and Basin is one mile from the bridge,
and here the Government has erected a handsome $150,000
swimming bath. The Banff Springs Hotel has its own
beautiful sulphur pool, with fresh water pool adjoining and
with expert masseurs in attendance at the Turkish baths
attached. The temperature of this sulphur water averages
90 degrees Fahrenheit (at the Hot Springs 100 degrees).
GOLF AND TENNIS
A nine-hole golf course (now being enlarged to eighteen
holes), situated on the banks of the Bow River at the base of
Mt. Rundle, is open to all visitors to Banff for a small fee. A
professional player is in attendance. A tennis court is free to
guests at the Banff Springs Hotel.
BOATING
Boating facilities—rowing, canoeing and motor-boating—
are available one hundred yards from the bridge. A paddle
up the Bow brings one to mirror-like Lake Vermilion-
one of the most beautiful lakes in the Park. A ten-mile
motor-boat trip into the heart of the mountains is also
offered. Another trip is up the Echo River, with two miles of
excellent paddling and rowing through clear water and sylvan
shade. An exciting and interesting trip can be taken by
running the rapids of the Bow from Castle, sending the canoe
to Castle by train. Lake Minnewanka, eight miles from
Banff, affords splendid boating amidst unexcelled scenery,
steam launches being also available.
RECREATION GROUNDS -
On the shore of the Bow River,  500 yards west of the
bridge, is the Government Recreation Grounds and building,
with   special   picnic,   baseball,   tennis,   football   and  cricket
grounds.

WALKING AND CLIMBING TRIPS
There are a large number of beautiful walks, trails and
roads leading from Banff, offering excellent tramping outings.
Bow Falls, at the junction of the Spray and Bow Rivers, and
three minutes' walk from the Banff Springs Hotel, is one of
the most beautiful spots in Banff. A lovely pine-canopied
avenue also runs from the Bow bridge to the foot of the falls
below the hotel, passing en route the fish hatchery of the
Department of Fisheries. On the east side of the Bow Falls
is the road which switchbacks up Tunnel Mountain, the
highest point being reached by a series of short switches
called the Corkscrew. It affords splendid views of the Bow
Valley and the surrounding mountains.
Sulphur Mountain, a long wooded ridge rising to an elevation of 7,455 feet, at the summit of which is an observatory,
and on the slopes of which is the clubhouse of the Alpine
Club of Canada; Cascade Mountain, a massive giant facing
the station; Mount Rundle, the sharp, pointed edge of which
forms one of the most striking features of the landscape;
Mount Edith, Stony Squaw, are ail within easy walking
distance, and afford climbs not exceeding one day.
The Animal Paddock, V/i miles from the town towards
Lake Minnewanka, and containing buffalo, elk, moose, mountain goat and mountain sheep, the Zoo and Museum, a"nd
Sun Dance Canyon should not be omitted.
DRIVES OR AUTOMOBILE TRIPS
Some of the walking trips mentioned may be taken by
carriage or automobile. In addition, there are others that
are too far for the ordinary walker. The Hoodoos (curious
giant-like* forms of glacial clay and gravel formed by the
weathering of the rocks), Lake Minnewanka, a lake of somewhat stem beauty with a plentiful supply of fish, Bankhead
and its anthracite mines, Johnston Canyon, with a fine waterfall, westward sixteen miles from Banff, and situated in the
midst of a panorama of snowy peaks, and the "loop ckive"-—
are some of these splendid driving trips.
SADDLE-PONY TRIPS   .
There are over 300 miles of trail in Rocky Mountains Park,
and many worth-while trips, from a day's to a fortnight's
duration, can be made from Banff or Lake Louise. In
addition to those which come under the head of walking or
driving, the visitor may find his way, by pony, to Mystic Lake,
in the heart of the Sawback range, to Ghost River and through
the Indian Reservation to the town of Morley, the Kananaskis
Lakes, forty-five miles south, Panther River, etc.
A particularly fine pony trip from Banff and one on which
several days can profitably be spent, is that to Mount Assiniboine—the "Matterhorn of the Rockies." This can be
reached via White Man's Pass and the Spray Lakes, and the
return made by traversing the beautiful summit country in
the vicinity of the mountain through the flowers of Simpson Pass and along the pools and waterfalls of Healy Creek.
Some of the best trout fishing in Canada may be had at the
Spray Lakes.
INDJAN POW-POW
There are a number of Indians in various reservations
near Banff. An annual "pow-pow" of sports, races, etc.,
is held during the month of July.

WHAT TO DO AT LAKE LOUISE
LAKE LOUISE
THE Pearl of the Canadian Rockies (altitude 5,670 feet).
"Probably the most perfect bit of scenery in the known
world. A lake of the deepest and most exquisite
coloring, ever changing, defying analysis, mirroring in its
wonderful depths the sombre forests and cliffs that rise from
its shores on either side, the gleaming white glacier and
tremendous snow-crowned peaks that fill the background
of the picture, and the blue sky and fleecy clouds overhead."
On the shores of the lake the Canadian Pacific operates
a magnificent Chateau hotel—open from June 1 st to September 30th.
Some there are who are satisfied to sit on the verandah of
the hotel watching the marvellous kaleidoscope of color,
while others are eager to be out on the trail either on foot,
or on the back of a sure-footed pony. These trails are being
constantly improved and extended, so that there is a wide
selection from which to choose. The hotel itself occupies
a very large area and has recently been greatly enlarged,
No more beautiful spot and no more comfortable hotel could
be chosen by anyone wishing to make either a short or long
stay in the €\,,.^ ^n Pacific Rockies. . The hotel has 260
bedrooms.
LAKE LOUISE PROMENADE
Along  the westerly shores of Lake  Louise  to  the  boat
landing (distance, I % miles), a delightful walk, along a level
trail with splendid views of Castle Crags, Mount Lefroy and
Mount Victoria.
LAKES IN THE CLOUDS AND BIG BEEHIVE
The trail leaves the west end of the Chateau and rises
gradually to Mirror Lake (altitude, 6,650 feet), thence
upward to Lake Agnes (altitude, 6,875 feet). There are
beautiful views on the way up, and the trail is excellent.
♦(Round-trip distance is five miles; time, two and one-half
hours.) A charming tea house has recently been established
on the shore of Lake Agnes. The trail is now continued
around Lake Agnes and up a zigzag path to the Observation
House on the Big Beehive.
LITTLE BEEHIVE AND MOUNT ST. PIRAN
After reaching Lake Agnes by the trail described above,
follow the path behind the Shelter Cabin for a quarter of a
mile. Here the trail forks, and the left branch may be
followed to the summit of Mount St. Piran (altitude, 8,681
feet), or the right branch tp the summit of the Little Beehive.
From either summit splendid views of the Bow Valley are
obtained.    Round trip, ten miles (time, six hours).
UPPER GLACIER TRAIL
This leaves the trail to the Lakes in the Clouds at Mirror
Lake, and continues along the side of the mountain to Lookout Point, situated about one thousand feet above Lake
Louise. The trail then descends gently to the level of the
Lower Glacier trail and the visitor may continue on towards
the wall of Victoria or return to the Chateau. Distance
from the wall of Victoria to the Chateau, four miles.
Page Eight
SADDLEBACK CABIN
Crossing the bi I "v. over Lake Louise Creek, the trail
rises rapidly on the slopes of Mount Fairview to the Saddleback. From this point Mount Saddleback and Mount
Fairview (altitude, 9,00! feet) are easy of access. Round-
trip distance to the cabin is six miles (time, four hours). The
view of Paradise Valley and Mount Temple, from the Saddleback, is one of the finest in the Rockies. The return trip
may be varied by going by a steep, zigzag trail via Sheol
Valley to the F • %-y trail and thence to Lake Louise.
VICTORIA AND LEFROY GLACIERS
The path along the shore of Lake Louise may be taken
to the Victoria and Lefroy glaciers, dist, < *.   Put lies
should not venture out on the ice » i . *•. >erly equipped,
and, indeed, the services of a gu de are recommended to
point out the peculiar ice formations. The hanging glaciers
of Mounts Lefroy and Victoria are impressive in their grandeur. The glacier is 200 to 250 h - k. The summit of
Mount Victoria is live miles in an air line from the Chateau.
MORAINE LAKE AND VALLEY OF THE TEN PEAKS
Automobiles run daily to Moraine Lake (distant nine miles),
situated in the deeply impressive Valley of the Ten Peaks.
From, the road one sees an interet <', *k formation known
as the Tower of Babel. For the past - < miners a small
permanent tea house and can*     < '   • vd
on the shores of Moraine Lake.
PARADISE VALLEY
Ponies may be taken up i, - c. •' 'Icy, via either th«
Saddleback and Sheol Valley, or via the low trail. 71 s s
journey is continued up the valley to a short branch trail
leading to the Giant's Steps, a step-like rock formation over
which the water glides in silver sheets. The journey may
then be continued across the valley to Lake Annette (altitude,
6,500 feet), a tiny emerald sheet of water on the side of
Mount Temple, and thence back to Lake Louise—distance,
thirteen miles; an i w i >ey, eight hours.
SENTINEL PASS
Via either the high or low route, Pi - -- Valley, thence to
the Giant's Steps and across the valley to Sentinel Pass (altitude, 8,556 feet). The descent is then made through Lodge
Valley, past the Minnestimma Lakes, to the Valley of the Ten
Peaks.    Return to the Ci .     au by the carriage road.
CONSOLATION LAKE
Leave the Chateau in the morning by automobile or carria g e
for Moraine Lake. From here the journey may be eontinv d
to Consolation Lake, distant about three miles. The waters
of the lake contain a plentiful supply of cut-throat trout, a vigorous fish which takes the fly in July and August, The waters
of these regions are re-stocked from the hatchery at Banff. LAKE O'HARA
was considered so beautiful by the great artist, John S.
Sargent, that he spent ten days painting, one recent summer.
By sending ponies ahead from Lake Louise to Hector and
taking train to that station, the trip to this lake may be
made in a day.    But so beautiful, is this Alpine region that
two days are little enough. There are several excellent
camping grounds, and arrangements for camping outfit and
guides can be made at the Chateau.
ALONG THE PIPESTONE
An excellent trail north of tke Bow River from Lake Louise*
along the valley of the Pipestone River, leads to an Alpine
Lake discovered three years ago to be full of trout eager for
the fly. The camping ground is nineteen miles from Lake
Louise station, so that guides, ponies and outfit are recommended for those who wish to fish, The season opens on July
1st. The lake is in an Alpine meadow amid high glacial
surroundings of spectacular grandeur and beauty. On the
return journey a magnificent view is afforded of the group of
peaks which form a chalice for Lake Louise itself.
SWISS GUIDES

ALPINE CLIMBING IN THE
THE" Canadian Pacific Rockies
comprise some of Nature's most
gigantic works. Fisewhere in
this publication the expression '*Fifty
Switzerlands in one" is used, This can
better be visualized when it is said
that in the various mountain ranges
that make up the Canadian Pacific
Rockies—the Rockies, the Selkirks,
and the Gold, Coast, Cascade and
Purcell Ranges—-there are, according
to government measurements, no less
than 598 mountain peaks above 5,000
feet in height above sea level, This
government list includes only those
peaks which bear names, and it does
not profess to exhaust the innumerable
mountains that have not yet been
named or measured. Of those actually
listed, there are 512 over 7,000 feet,
405 over 8,000 feet, 291 over 9,000 feet,
147 over 10,000 feet., 44 over 11,000
feet, 3 over 12,000 feet, and one over
13,000 feet,
. But it should be noted that 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. This is not so in the Canadian
Pacific Rockies. For example, some
fifty principal mountains seen by the
traveller from the train or at the most
popular mountain resorts—at and
around Banff, Lake Louise, Moraine
Lake, O'Hara Lake, Field, Emerald
Lake, the Yoho Valley, and Glacier™
and ranging in height from 8,000 to
11,500 feet, average a height above the
floor of the valleys at their base of
about   4,800   feet,   or   almost   a mile.

more fascinating than to start out in

CANADIAN PACIFIC ROCKIES
the early morning, stepping in half an
hour from the perfect civilization of a
luxurious hotel into the primitive glory
of cliff and crag, winding waterway and
frozen grandeur, to spend the day
among the mountains. With a blue
sky overhead, the air soft with the
sweet resinous spice of the forest, and
all cares left far behind, one sees only
beautiful sights, hears only wonderland
sounds, and for a whole long day lives
close to the very heart of Nature in her
most splendid mood. There are climbs
both strenuous and easy, long and
short, appealing equally to women as
well as to men.
An active Alpine Club, with over 500
members, and headquarters at Banff,
holds a camp each year in the Canadian
Pacific Rockies, and welcomes those
who have the ambition to climb a peak
at least 10,000 feet high. The Canadian
Pacific Railway has a number of experienced Swiss guides attached to its
mountain hotels. These guides were
originally imported from Europe, but
now have a picturesque little colony of
their own at Edelweiss, near Golden,
B.C.
President A. O. Wheeler, of the
Alpine Club of Canada, writes:—
"Apart from the wonderful and unexplained exhilaration that comes from
climbing on snow and ice, and the overwhelming desire to see what lies beyond,
your true Alpine enthusiast glories in
the wide-spreading spectacular panorama that is seen from a mountain top,
when all in view is spread before him
as on a living map. It is in places such
as these, where the prescience of an
Almighty Power is ever present, and
which can only be attained through
hard bodily exertion, that he loves for
a brief space to enjoy the wonders that
are spread at his feet,"

This trip,  however,  should not ■ be  undertaken  by anyone
unacquainted with glacier-climbing conditions.    There are a
number of crevasses to be crossed, especially if. the trip is
made late in the season, and a Swiss guide should be taken. The   route   from   the  Yoho  Valley   is  roughly  northeast.

GLACIER
IN the heart of the Selkirks, an admirable centre for Alpine
climbing. There are two very fine glaciers within easy
reach of the hotel—one, indeed, the Illecillewaet Glacier,
may be said to be in the yard of the Canadian Pacific Hotel
Glacier Park covers 468 square miles and is a Paradise for
those in search of Alpine flowers—over 500 varieties blooming every summer. Glacier House, the Canadian Pa' ::
Hotc m 1st to September !5th.    (American plan).
Sir Donald (10,808 feet) rises, a naked and abrupt pyrai j
to a height of a mile and a quarter above the railway. This
stately monolith was named after the late Sir Donald Sn * i
(Lord Strathcona), one of the promoters of the Canadian
Pacific Railway, Farther to the left are sharp peaks—-Uto,
Ear* nche and Macdonald—second only to Sir Donald.
Rogers Pass and the snowy Hermit Range, the most prominent peaks of which are called the Swiss Peaks, are in full
view. Again, to the left, at the west end of the Hermit Range
on the si * j of Bear Creek, comes Cheops, s<   ni
after the Great Pyramid, the tomb of the Pharaoh Shufu
(Cheops), who lived about 3,700 B. C; and in the foreground,
and far down among the trees, the Illecillewaet glistens
across the valley.
.     GREAT ILLECILLEWAET GLACIER
Less than two miles from the hotel and tumbling from an
altitude of 9,000 feet on the sky line, to 4,800 feet at the
forefoot,  this glacier covers ten square miles arid is easily
reached in one hour by way of an excellent trail. The return
trip may be taken along the alternative tra?.: on the east bank
of the II! et River.
ASULKAN VALLEY AND GLACIER
(Altitude, 4,100 to 6,000 feet.) The trail branches off
the main great glacier trail one-quarter of a mile from the
hotel, and crossing the Asulkan Brook, climbs up the east
side of the valley to the forefoot of the Asu i lacier,
distant four miles from the hotel. This is one of the n
beautiful valleys in the Selkirks.
MARION LAKE, OBSERVATION POINT AND
THE ABBOTT ALP
The trail leaves the rear of the hotel (altitude, 4,093 feet)
and climbs gradually up the slopes of Mount Abbott to Marion
Lake (altitude, 5,666 feet). The lake can be reached in less
than an hour and a half. In the early morning a beautiful
reflection of the Hermit Range is to be seen on the surface
of the lake. At Marion Lake the trail forks, the right trail
going to Observation Point (altitude, 5,750 feet), distant
about one hundred yards away, from which ^ a splendid
panorama of Rogers Pass is to be had. The trail branching
to the left leads to the Abbott Alp, a beautiful grassy upland.
From here a splendid view of the Dawson Range can be had.
GLACIER CREST
A path branches from the Asulkan trail, a short distance
from the first bridge, and climbs, corkscrew fashion, to Glacier
Crest (altitude, 7,419 feet), commanding the Illecillewaet
Glacier, with its crevasses, seracs, and moraines.
Page Eighteen
CASCADE SUMMERHOUSE
Starting from the Swiss guides' Chalet, a path I*.
the lower slopes of Mount Avalanche to t'
'merhouse, perched at an altitude of 5,252 feet.
From this p- >o cascade tumbles in a series of le.   is
to a distance of 1,200 feet. Still higher up one may go to
Avalanche Crest (altitude, 7,855 feet). A magnificent view
of the Bonney Ridge and glacier may be had from this p   n
ROGERS PASS
The summit of the Selkirk Range as formerly crossed by
the railway (altitude, 4,351 feet), is reached by a pony trail.
Here the stupendous precipices of Mount Tupper (altitude,
9,229 feet) may be seen to advantage. The trail to the
Rogers a;j *    *nay be tajcen from this point, and the
cabin there used as a base for exploring and climbing.
BEAR CREEK
This beautiful little valley is directly opposite Rogers
Pass Summit and ends in the Baloo Pass, distant three
miles. Beautiful waterfalls deck the sides of the valley,
the upper reaches of which are carpeted with flowers. The
journey may be continued over the Baloo Pass to the Nakimu
Caves, the Cougar Valley trail and road to the hotel, which
is di?       .   " -e and one-half miles from the Baloo Pass.
NAKIMU CAVES
With beautiful interior marble markings, si : :  on the
lower slopes of Mount Cheops, in the Cougar Valley, are
reached by an excellent carriage road and pony trail, the
distance from Glacier House being five miles. Parties may
arrange to take lunch and have same at the cabin, s • \ 1
at the caves. Energetic walkers will find it worth while to
continue on the trail over the Baloo Pass, returning to the
hotel by Rogers Pass.
ASULKAN VALLEY AND GLACIER TO
ASULKAN PASS
The Asulkan Pass (altitude, 7,710 feet) may be   reached
by  an easy one-day  trip across >**er.    The view  of
the Dawson Range from the pass is beautiful.
A DAY ON THE GREAT GLACIER
The   formation   of   crevasses,   seracs,   moulins,  etc.,   may
best be studied by spending a day with a Swiss guide on the
great glacier.    Perley Rock may also be visited and the great
crags of Mount Sir Donald viewed from this vantage point,
THE DOG TOOTH MOUNTAINS AND CANYON
CREEK VALLEY
The opening of a trail from Glacier House to the Beaver
River, and. the erection of bridges over the Beaver River
and Grizzly Creek, has made possible the ascent of the Dog
Tooth Mountains, a beautiful range to the west of Golden.
The route along the bottom of Grizzly Creek is easy; thence
it ascends by. gentle gradients to the pass over the Dog
Tooth Range,, which, though above the timber line, is low and
quite accessible. Open park lands extend from the pass to
Canyon Creek Valley, where the beautiful meadows make an
ideal camping ground.    From the peaks on one side there is a fine view of the Columbia Valley towards Golden; from th-- ?h,
on the other, of the Spillimacheen Mountains, while back
across the Beaver Valley are seen the more familiar snow-
clad giants of the Selkirks. The trip from Glacier House
to Canyon Creek Valley and back can be made in three days.
It is expected that the extension,of the trail to Golden will
shortly be carried through by the British Columbia Government.
;      ASULKAN PASS
And  return, via Swanzy Glacier and Lily Pass (altitude,
8,228 feet), a long, but splendid trip, traversing many glaciers.
The route may be reversed by making the trip via the summit
of Mount Abbott and rear slope of the Rampart.
UTO AND EAGLE PASSES
A. circuit of Eagle Peak, making the trip via the pass
between Uto Peak and Mount Sir Donald, and the return
by the pass between Eagle Peak and Mount Avalanche.
Imposing views of the northwest ridge of Mount Sir Donald
and of the whole Beaver Valley,
MOUNTS ABBOTT AND AFTON
(Altitudes,  8,081   and 8,425  feet.)    A. delightful one-day
climb, with splendid views of the Mount Bonney Region.
CASTOR AND POLLUX
(Altitudes, 9,108 and 9 J 76 feet.)    The twin peaks may be
climbed via Asulkan Valley and Glacier,    They present no
difficulty to a well-equipped party.
MOUNT GRIZZLY
The trail may be taken to Rogers Pass Summit sj .„-i
there a short walk via Bear Creek Valley leads to the actual
climb. From the summit the view northward reveals the
monarch of the Selkirks, Mount Sir Sanford (altitude, 11,590
feet), while to the northeast may be seen the gigantic escarpment of the Rocky Mountains.
Note:—-Swiss Guides are stationed ai the Hotel and are
available for the service of tourists for the fee of $6.00 per day.

within the Natk - • . "*rks in

:, h<' re is magnificent sport to be had outside the Park limits, and the € » „r
Pacific Railway hotels are good outfitting points for some of the best
hunting grounds, British Columbia is
the last home of the grizzly, that
monarch of the bear family. He is to
be found pretty much throughout
the Selkirks and Rockies, the East
Kootenay and Lillooet districts, and
the country reached from Revelstoke,
being particularly promising hunting
grounds. The best time to hunt for
bear is in the spring.
The Rocky Mountain goat, whose
uncanny beard gives him almost a
human appearance, has his home
among the peaks of the Canadian
Pacific Rockies. He is a brave and
fearless fighter, and is more than a
match for any dog that dares to attack
him. His sharp and needle-like horns
and strong, pointed hoofs are exce: -::
weapons of defence against his
enemies. He is the most daring of all
mountain-climbers, fearless and surefooted, and delights in scaling great
heights and taking perilous »..
across chasms. His coat is white, soft
and fluffy* and the color has the ef
of magnifying his size, which is usually
about thirty-five to forty inches at the
shoulder. When full grown he weighs
from 200 to 250 pounds. He has practically no enemies save men and eagles.
When danger threatens he climbs up
or down the steepest precipice he can
find,   and   there   is   no  wild   creature

valuer! i ; obtainable by the sports-
sru'.;    -M M,   »)e is among the fastnesses
of the Canadian Pacific Rockies. This
animal is of a suspicious nature, but is
sure-footed and self-reliant in its mountain home and will escape over ro
which the hunter finds impossible to
traverse. Its flesh is pronounced by
epicures to be the most delicious of the
world's game and its massive wide-
spreading horns make a beautiful
ornament. Of all Canadian game the
Bighorn is most wary and difficult to
bag. His vigilance is admirable and
once he has regained the higher ground,
after feeding during the early morning,
only the combination of luck and skill

The Lillooet District is a fine country
for In i :«g the common Bighorn. The
town of Lillooet, reached by s

picked up and all essentials for a trip
obtained.

FISHING IN THE CANADIAN PACIFIC
ROCKIES
THERE are many spots in the Canadian Pacific Rockies
where the angler is assured of excellent fishing.    Some
of   the   principal  fishing  waters  are  indicated  in  the
following brief survey,
BANFF
Six game fish have their habitat in the waters of the Banff
National Park—the Cut-Throat Trout, the Lake Trout,
the Dolly Varden, the Bull Trout, Brook Trout and the
Rocky Mountain Whitefish. Any point on the Bow River
upstream for several miles from the bridge at Banff affords
Dolly Varden and Bull Trout, The Vermilion Lakes, half
a mile from the boat house, and Forty-Mile Creek, a beautiful
stream that joins the Bow River at Banff, can be profitably
fished. A little farther afield, the Bow River offers capital
fishing.
A favorite and delightful trip is by canoa from Castle
station, down this lovely river to Banff, fishing the various
pools for Cut-Throat Trout, etc. Castle is seventeen miles
by rail west of Banff and can also be conveniently reached
over the splendid new motor highway. There are fine camping sites along the route. Canoes can be taken by train from
Banff and easily carried the short distance necessary to the
river at Castle.
In the opposite direction, on the Bow River from Banff to
its junction with the Kananaskis River at Seebe, are deep
pools and eddies, where good fishing is obtainable, but only
good canoe men should attempt this trip.
Lake Minnewanka, or Devil's Lake, eight miles from Banff
and easily reached by auto or driving over a good road,
affords fine fishing for Lake Trout, which reach an uncommon size. The usual method of taking these fish is by
trolling, A comfortable chalet is located on the shore of
the lake at the end of the road.
Mystic Lake, seventeen miles from Banff, drains into
Forty-Mile Creek", It is reached by pony trail via Mount
Edith Pass. The best fishing is usually found near the
mouth of the glacial spring which enters the lake. While
the varieties of fish offered do not run to any large size,
they will bite greedily.
Seven miles beyond Mystic Lake are the Sawback Lakes,
where there is also very good fishing to be had for Cut-Throat
and Dolly Varden Trout.
Spray River joins the Bow at Banff. At the Falls, about
eight miles Up stream, the fishing begins and continues right
to the Spray Lakes, twenty miles further. August is the best
time to fish this water. Fly and spinner will prove successful
lures for fine sport.
The Spray Lakes are twenty-eight miles from Banff, over
a good pony trail, which for a great part of the distance
follows closely the windings of the enchanting Spray River.
Cut-Throat, Silver and Dolly Varden Trout run to a large
size both in the lakes and in the several streams entering into
and running out of them.    July and  August are  the   best
Page Twenty-four
fly-fishing   months,    Rocky   Mountain   Whitefish   are   also
Elentiful. Very large trout are caught in the Lower Kananaskis
,ake, reached by way of the Spray Lakes from Banff or up
through the Kananaskis River Valley from Morley.
Information in detail in regard to fishing at Banff can be
obtained from the Fishing Inspector at the office of the Superintendent of the Park.
LAKE LOUISE
Jn the upper waters of the Pipestone River, reached by pack
trail from Lake Louise, there are many pools and several lakes
yielding fine sport for the fly fisherman.    At times there is
also reasonably good fi* ig a this stream quite close to
Lake Louise station.
There is good fishing to be had in Consolation Lake, three
miles beyond Moraine Lake, where some English ladies
maintain a summer camp. Here there, are plenty of Cut-
Throat Trout, which take the fly freely.
Upper Bow Lake is up in the Glacial Belt, and the largest
fish of their kind are to be found here—Cut-Throat, Dolly
Varden and Silver Trout. Spinner, minnow or beef will
tempt the big fellows, though in the Bow River fly can be used
for the Cut-Throat. After the Spring freshets are over is the
only time worth trying. It takes about two days from Lake
Louise over pony trail to reach this lake.
A splendid trip, occupying about a week and combining
excellent fishing with rare scenic attractions, can be made
by following the trail up the Ptarmigan Valley to the foot
of Mount Richardson, a distance of about nine miles from
Chateau Lake Louise. Cross from there over to head of the
Little Pipestone River, about seven miles, where the fishing
really commences. Continue along to camp on the main
Pipestone River—six miles. The Pipestone can then be
followed up fifteen miles to its head waters, which gives
access to a chain of beautiful lakes abounding with large,
gamy Cut-Throat Trout, ranging up to five pounds in weight.
They will take the fly quite readily.
If a more extended outing than the foregoing is desired,
follow up Molar Creek, which runs into the Pipestone River
from the west at junction of Little Pipestone with the main
river, skirt Mount Hector, viewing the Hector Glacier and
return by way of the Bow River to Lake Louise. This
extension covers an additional thirty-five miles of incomparably grand and beautiful scenery with further good fishing
possibilities. Hector, or Lower Bow Lake, may also be
visited as an offshoot of this trip.
FIELD, B. C
Emerald Lake (seven miles from F}*-'-' over a good road)
should not be overlooked by the angler, The fishing there
at times affords very good, sport. Accommodation at Emerald
Lake Chalet,    Skiffs available.
REVELSTOKE, B, C.
The fishing in this district is best in the Spring and Fall,
especially the latter. While there are one or two fishing
grounds only a short distance from the city,  the best are about half a day's journey. Pack horses, readily obtained
locally, are the usual and most satisfactory method of reaching the fishing haunts. In the Illecillewaet River, which
runs through the east end of the city and then strikes towards
the northeast, there are Brook, Mountain and Rainbow Trout,
In Cherry Creek, five miles east of the city, over a good trail
or by train, Mountain and Rainbow Trout are found. The
Jordan River, some six miles from the city, is particularly
the home of the Dolly Varden, but there are also Rainbow
and Cut-Throat Trout.
Halfway Creek and Goose Creek are about fourteen miles
from the city, over a very good trail. Both these creeks
flow into the Jordan River. The same kind of fish are
found here. Lake Griffin and Three Valley Lake are a few
miles west of the city, reached by train. There are no boats
on these lakes for hire, but they can generally be borrowed
from the local railway hands. There are rafts, too, usually
available. The fishing includes Cut-Throat, Gray Trout and
a so-called Nipigon Trout, which is in reality a Rainbow.
Columbia River—This river runs through the city of
Revelstoke from the north. In the fall Salmon Trout come
up the river and can be taken by using live bait with a small
red fish, which runs up from the Arrow Lakes. This appears
to be the only method used. The trout, however, having
come up the river to spawn, are generally in poor condition.
SICAMOUS, B. C.
At the head of the celebrated Shuswap Lakes and the foot
of Lake Mara is a fine fishing csntre, affording wide scope
for the activities of the angler. Make headquarters at the
Canadian Pacific Railway's hotel, adjoining station.
Shuswap Lake has the reputation of containing more
varieties of trout and other fish than any water in British
Columbia. There are Lake, Silver, Gray, Salmon, Rainbow,
Cut-Throat and Dolly Varden Trout and Steelhead and Landlocked Salmon.
Skiffs and small motor launches can be hired at reasonable
rates,    Guides are also available.
There are several rivers and creeks running into the Shuswap
Lakes in which the fishing is good. It is best, however, to
fish at the mouth of these streams.
During the hot summer months, July and August, when
fish do not tike a fly readily, the best method to follow is
deep trolling. The Steelheads are very gamy and run as
high as twenty pounds. The Grey and Silver Trout run up
to about fifteen pounds.
SALMON ARM, B. C.
Another point from which one may fish the Shusw;ap Lakes.
The fishing is similar to that at Sicamous. The fly fishing
in this vicinity is good only during the month of June. Hotel
accommodation  available.    Motor  launches  and  skiffs can
be hired from private parties at reasonable rates.
CHASE, B. C.
A number of good fishing waters can be readily reached
from this point, the chief of which are:
Shuswap Lake, one mile: Adams Lake, seven miles; Ninco-
lith Lake, four miles; as well as several small unnamed lakes
from eight to ten miles away. Emptying into the different
lakes are the Adams and South Thompson Rivers and several
small creeks.
Practically the same varieties of fish are found in the
various waters mentioned, all of which can be reached by
wagon trail. These varieties are: Kamloops Trout, Silver,
Dolly Varden, Cut-Throat and Rainbow Trout.    The Kam
loops Trout run as high as seven or eight pounds and the Silver
and Dolly Varden up to fourteen or fifteen pounds.
KAMLOOPS, B. C.
One of the best centres that there are for the fly fisherman.
There are several fine fishing waters within convenient reach
by automobile.
Fish Lake, twenty-two miles to the south, is reached by an
excellent motor road which runs directly to the lake at point
where "Rainbow Lodge" is located. Here comfortable
rooms and good board and use of boat can be obtained at a
moderate rate.    It is advisable to write in advance to pro-
grietor of the Lodge, Mr. Robt. Cowan, Fish Lake, Kamloops,
>. C, for reservation, as there are only a limited number of
boats on the lake.
In Fish Lake there are Rainbow and Cut-Throat Trout.
The fishing is best in June and July and again in September
and October. It is not as good in August except in the late
evening. There is a limit of twenty fish per day for each
person and a size limit of ten inches.
Paul Lake lies a)x»ut twelve miles northeast of Kamloops
and is reached by automobile. Conditions are very similar
to Fish Lake, but the fish do not take a fly as freely. They
can, however, always be taken on a troll or by spinning.
Rainbow, Cut-Throat and Lake Trout are found in Paul Lake.
Penanton Lake lies about eighteen miles southwest of
Kamloops and is reached by a good motor road. Boats can
be hired at the lake. The varieties of fish are the same as
in Fish and Paul Lakes.
Thompson River-—this river flows through the city, but
the fishing is not good until one gets a little way out, either to
the east or west.
Fish to be had are sea-run Rainbows, Cut-Throat, Dolly
Varden and the Celebrated Thompson River or Kamloops
Trout.
There are a number of hotels in Kamloops, and usual needs
of the angler in the way of equipment, etc., can be met
locally. Automobiles can be hired on reasonable terms and
motor-boats rented.
There are no regular local guides, but automobile drivers
are nearly all keen fishermen and usually know where the
fish are taking best.
SAVONA, B. C.
Situated at the junction of Tranquille or Kamloops Lake
and the Thompson River.    The same kinds of fish are to be
found as at Kamloops.    There is particularly good trolling
where the lake flows into the river,
WALLACHIN, B. C.
Seven miles west of Savona, is perhaps the best point from
which to fish the Thompson River. The town is about three
quarters of a mile from the river. Hotel accommodation
available.
Fishing is the same as at Savona and other places along
the river.
As the river is very rapid here it will be found necessary
to wade. There are innumerable pools, but the best fishing
is to be had in the very swift water on the north side of the
river. B-
The Thompson River can be fished from several places
where conditions are favorable and there is accommodation
to be had, the principal of which are:
ASHCROFT, SPENCE'S BRIDGE: AND LYTTON, B. C.
In from Ashcroft, along the old Cariboo trail, there are
several lakes and streams in which the fishing is extremely
good.    Automobiles to reach fishing waters can^be obtained
at Ashcroft.

SAVE THE FORESTS
Canada's  timber   reserves  are
national  assets of  incalculable value.
l*. ct  to take ordinary  precau
tions which ensure them against destruction from forest fires is to rob
civilization. Quite apart from the
;rr to the lives, homes and property
of settlers,-every acre of forest burned
means labor . turned away, reduced-
markets for manufactured products,
heavier taxation on other property,
and higher lumber prices. Passengers
on trains should not throw lighted
cigar or cigarette ends from car windows. Those who go into the woods—
hunters, fishermen, campers and canoe-
ists—-should consider it their duty to
e -'-:.ise every care to prevent loss
from   fire.     Small   fires   should   be

VANCOUVER
Vancouver, the terminal of the Canadian Pacific transcontinental rail lines and its trans-Pacific steamship routes, is
the largest commercial centre in British Columbia. 11 has an
excellent harbor nearly land-locked and fully sheltered, facing
a beautiful range of mountains that are tipped with snow the
year around. Two peaks, silhouetted against the sky, and
remarkably resembling two couchant lions, are visible from
almost any point in the city or harbor, which has been appropriately called "The Lion's Gate."
In and around Vancouver are immense lumber and shingle
mills. Mining, lumbering, farming, shipbuilding and shipping, with a vast Oriental business, form the reason of the
city's phenomenal growth and prosperity. From a forest
clearing thirty-five years ago it has become one of the principal
cities and most important seaports of the North Pacific Coast.
The magnificent Hotel Vancouver is the finest hotel of the
North Pacific, with 490 guests' bedrooms. Wonderful views
of the Strait of Georgia can be obtained from the roof garden
of this hotel.
Vancouver is most picturesquely situated on Burrard Inlet.
Surrounding it are beautiful environs of varied character.
All kinds of water sports are available, and are encouraged
through a mild climate and extensive bodies of water. There
are many bathing beaches, parks, boulevards, automobile
roads and paved streets.
MOTORING
The roads around the city are famous for their excellence,
and there are many fine drives, varying from an hour to a day
in time. Amongst them may be mentioned Stanley Park-
one of the largest natural parks in the world, a primeval forest
right within the city limits and containing thousands of
Douglas firs and giant cedars of a most amazing size and age.
The park is encircled by a perfect road. The "Marine Drive"
takes the visitor/through the best residential parts of the city,
including Shaughnessy Heights and Point Grey, thence to the
mouth of the Fraser River, with its fleets of salmon trawlers,
and back along the coast. Capilano Canyon, a gorge of great
natural beauty, in North Vancouver, is reached by a recently
completed road. The Pacific Highway, including Kingsway,
runs through Vancouver, connecting ,up with the main American roads of the Northwest.
GOLF AND TENNIS
Vancouver has three good golf courses. Guests of the
Hotel Vancouver have special privileges at the Shaughnessy
Heights Golf Club.
Shaughnessy Heights Golf Club is an 18-hole courss within
fifteen minutes' drive from the Hotel Vancouver, recognized
as one of the best links on the Pacific Coast. The Pacific
Northwest championships have been held here.
Page Twenty-eight
Jericho Golf and Country Club is a 9-hole seashore course,
with good greens and fairways, There are four tennis courts,
five bowling greens, and splendid bathing in connection with
the club.
Vancouver Golf and Country Club is an  18-hole course
some fifteen miles from the hotel by automobile road.    This
course is beautifully situated.
There are a number of good tennis clubs, all with grass
courts. Members of any recognized tennis club have the
privilege of membership in the Vancouver Tennis Club, which
has eight courts and a beautiful clubhouse.
BATHING AND BOATING
There are numerous fine bathing beaches around Vancouver,
the most easily reached of which are English Bay and Kit-
silano-—-both on street-car line. The scene at English Bay,
which lies at one entrance to Stanley Park, on a sunny afternoon, is one of great animation. Burrard Inlet, English Bay
and the North Arm are excellent places also for boating.
Vancouver boasts of one of the finest yacht clubs on the
Pacific Coast, which extends a hearty welcome to members of
recognized yacht clubs. The North Arm is an ideal place for
picnics and moonlight excursions,
STEAMER TRIPS
Sailing of any kind along the Pacific Coast is one of the
chief pleasures of the residents and is therefore easily accessible to visitors. The trip from Vancouver across the Straits
of Georgia to Nanaimo is particularly fine.    Call is made at
Comox and other points. An excellent circle tour may be
made by taking a Canadian Pacific "Princess" steamer to
Victoria, the E. & N. train from Victoria to Nanaimo, thence
back to Vancouver by steamer.
SHOOTING    .
Within easy reach of Vancouver there is wonderful shooting
to be had.    Grouse, duck,  teal,  mallard, snipe,  pheasants,
and partridges are plentiful in season. Lulu Island, Sea Island,
the North Shore and Seymour Flats are all within an hour of
the hotel.
FISHING
It is extremely doubtful whether there is another city on the
Pacific Coast where such a variety of fishing could be obtained.
In season, salmon, spring, cohoe and tyee, steelheads, Dolly
Varden, rainbow, cut-throat and sea trout are plentiful.
Arrangements have been made by the Hotel Vancouver with
the Vancouver Fishing Association to obtain daily reports as
to the runs, and the services of an experienced fisherman can
be obtained by guests of the hotel to conduct them to the
various fishing centres. Fishing tackle, bait and flies are
easily obtainable in the city. Page Twenty-nine ftftft ft
t(    DO AT VICTORIA
VICTORIA
Victoria, charmingly situated at the southern end of Vancouver Island ting the Straits of Juan de Fuca across
the Hue 'waters to the snow-capped Olympic Mountains on the
mainland, is the Garden City of Canada. Its delightfully
mild climate makes it a favorite resort for both summer and
winter. It is the provincial capital of British Columbia, and
owing to the characteristic beauty of its residential district has
often been called "A bit of England on the shores of the
Pacific," It is distinctively a home city, with fine roads and
beautiful gardens, although its enterprising business district,
composed of imposing stores and tall office buildings, speak of
a rich comme m from the fishing, lumber and agri
cultural industries of Vancouver Island. Victoria's beauty
lies in its residential districts, its boulevards, parks, public
buildings, numerous bathing beaches, and semi-tropical
foliage. Its Parliament buildings rank amongst the handsomest in America,
The Empress Hotel, last in the chain of Canadian Pacific
hotels, overlooks the inner harbor, within a stone's throw of
