//v RESORTS IN WESTERN CANADA
A land of such vast extent as that extending from the head of the Great Lakes to tine
Canadian Rockies is naturally a land of variety.   While famous as the great grain producing area
of the Empire, nature has also blessed her with many beautiful lakes, rivers and mountains,
providing some of the most delightful vacation spots to be found anywhere.    Here one can get.
out into the big outdoors and enjoy life to the fullest.
Herein are briefly depicted some of the more important summer resorts in Western Canada,
many of which are renowned for their scenic beauty. Only the main points have been brought
out, leaving much to the imagination of the reader, the reality of which will not disappoint if
the reader changes his role to that of visitor.
It is in summer that "the West" is at her loveliest, with glorious warm summer days and
long evenings tempered by delightfully cool nights which invite rest. o
LAKE OF THE WOODS
The Lake of the Woods district is a veritable paradise for the vacationist, being one of the
finest Island-Lake regions on the North-American Continent. Kenora and Keewatin, situated
about 125 miles east of Winnipeg on the main line of the Canadian Pacific Railway, are the
gateways. On many of the islands and on the mainland are the summer homes of thousands of
residents of the Prairie Provinces.
Many large camps such as the M.L.A. and the Y.M.C.A.
are located here, attracting each year hundreds of vacationists.
The Canadian Pacific also operate a bungalow camp, charmingly situated at the southern end of Devil's Gap, after which
it has been named. The camp is twenty minutes by launch
from Kenora, and one of the most delightful motor-boat
trips one could wish for. The Lake abounds with several
varieties of fish and is a popular rendezvous for anglers.
The regattas, sailing races and other aquatic sports annually
staged at Kenora, have made this popular summer playground
Internationally famous, these events being attended by
sportsmen from both the United States and Canada. In
addition to the service provided by the two daily transcontinental trains of the Canadian Pacific, special week-end
trains are operated to and from Winnipeg during the camping
season.

WINNIPEG BEACH
The beautiful lakeshore resort, 49 miles
north of the City of Winnipeg, is the nearest
resort to the Manitoba Capital; stretching
for a distance of several miles along the
southwesterly side of Lake Winnipeg are
the smiling sands of shoreline fringed with
beautiful oaks, elms, poplars and evergreens.
The beach is without a peer as a playground
for kiddies. It is the summer home of
thousands, being justly termed "Manitoba's
Residential Summer Resort." The Canadian Pacific provides the speediest and most
convenient service to and from the City,
making it possible for the business man to
spend his evenings with his family, and
return to the City in the morning in time
for business. Winnipeg Beach is particularly well equipped for the handling of
picnic parties, having an excellent sports
ground, bathing beach and bath houses for
men and women, and numerous attractive
amusements—the new dance pavilion, the
largest and most beautiful in Western
Canada; the movie theatre; merry-go-
round; swings; ponies; bowling alleys;
shooting gallery, and the roller coaster with
its famous thrilling dips and hair-raising
curves. A fine nine-hole golf course is also
provided, as well as tennis courts, while
regattas and community camp fires are

For the accommodation of large and sroHi
crafts the Dominion Government h&s

BANFF
Banff, which is reached in about three
hours from Calgary, is a fitting front-door
to the magnificence of the mountains.
Situated in a pocket of a wide circle of
pearly grey limestone peaks, embowered
in pine forests and lawns, with the glacial-
green Bow River flowing through it, it is the
capital of Rocky Mountains Park, and no
part of the Rockies yet to come exhibits a
greater variety of sublime and romantic
beauty.
Banff has been for many years one of
the most popular mountain resorts of this
continent—due not only to its environment
but also to the beautifully located and
luxurious Banff Springs Hotel (a Canadian
Pacific hotel).
Banff affords a remarkable variety of
recreation—riding, climbing, boating, golf,
tennis, motoring and trail trips. Its sulphur
baths are world-famous; one of the four
adjoins Banff Springs Hotel. Within easy
reach are many pleasant hikes or easy
climbs, such as to the picturesque and
brilliantly colored terraces of the Hot
Springs, the wooded slopes of Sulphur
Mountain, Sundance Canyon, Tunnel
Mountain and the Cave and Basin. Within
a short drive is the interesting Buffalo Park.
Good roads and trails radiate in all directions, leading to the Hoodoos, Cascade
Mountain, Stoney Squaw Mountain and
the beautiful Vermilion Lakes.
There are also stiff and challenging
ascents like that of Mount Edith for the
graduated Alpinist, who very often makes
his headquarters with the Alpine Club of
Canada, on the slope of Tunnel Mountain.
The annual "pow-wow" of the Stoney
Indians from Morley Reservation is annually held at Banff during the month of July
and attracts cavalcades of braves and
squaws.
LAKE LOUISE
Lake Louise—probably the most perfect
gem of scenery in the known world—bears
the liquid music, the soft color notes of its
name, almost into the realm of the visible.
Geographically a "cirque lake"—a deep,
steep-walled recess caused by glacial erosion, nestling 600 feet above the railway dQ
the far side of a mountain palisade, amidst
an amphitheatre of peaks—it is a dramatic
palette upon which the Great Artist has
splashed his most gorgeous hues, a spectrum
of color. Deepest and most exquisitely
colored is the lake itself, sweeping from
rosy dawn to sunset through green, blue,
amethyst and violet, undershot by gold:
dazzling white is the sun-glorified Victoria
Glacier, at the farther end; sombre are the
enclosing pine-clad peaks that dip perpendicularly into the lake; and magnificent are
the stark immensities of the snow-crowned
peaks that enclose the entire picture, except
for the fleecy blue sky overhead.
On the margin of this most perfect lake,
in one of the wonderful Alpine flower
gardens in which the Rockies abound—
where poppies, violets, columbines, anemones and sheep laurel slope through teQ,
raced lawns to the water's edge—the
Canadian Pacific has placed its great
Chateau Lake Louise.
Adjoining it is a 100-foot open-air swim**
ming pool.
From the Chateau good roads and trails
lead to the principal features of interest in
the vicinity. A very easy ascent, either on
foot or on the back of a sure-footed mountain pony, is to the Lakes in the Clouds —
Mirror Lake and Lake Agnes, nestling over
a thousand feet above Lake Louise, affording magnificent views of the surrounding
peaks.
Page    Twelve  ALBERTA RESORTS
WATERTON LAKES
Waterton Lakes is one of the many
beautiful resorts with which the Province
of Alberta is so bountifully endowed. In
addition to a wealth of scenic beauty this
delightful spot provides practically every
form of outdoor amusement—fishing is possibly one of the most popular sports, adjacent to the park are many well-stocked
lakes and streams, easily reached from
Waterton Lakes, where the Angler is always
assured of a good catch.
Golf is also a favored pastime, at present
there is a fine nine-hole course, but with
the increasing popularity of the game it is
expected that it will be enlarged to eighteen
holes in the near future. Besides fishing
and golf, there are numerous other attractions, such as swimming, dancing, tennis,
motoring, bathing, riding, hiking and
climbing.
Waterton Lakes Park, with an area of 220
square miles, is one of Canada's national
parks, it derives its name from the larger
of the two lakes, which lie in a long narrow
valley between lofty mountain peaks. It
is reached from the Canadian Pacific Railway by motor road either from Cardston
on the Blue Trail Route south of Macleod
or Pincher on the Red Trail Route, about
36 miles distant. There is a fine resort

facility incidental to aquatic sports, such as
bathing,   boating   and   fishing.
