NATURE has thrown up the
Canadian Rockies on so vast a
scale that the human mind can
with difficulty grasp their greatness,
except by some comparison. The
transcontinental trains take twenty-
four hours to pass from Cochrane, at
the entrance to the Rockies, to Mission,
some forty miles east of Vancouver.
The simplest parallel is that of the
Swiss Alps, which throw their giant
barrier between Italy and France.
Two of the best known railway
routes across the Swiss Alps are the
St. Gothard and the Simplon, and in
each case only five hours is taken
by the express trains on either the
St. Gothard route from Lucerne to
Como or the Simplon route from Lausanne to Arona. When, therefore,
Edward Whymper, the hero of the
Matterhorn, described the Canadian
Pacific Rockies as fifty Switzerlands
thrown into one, this certainly was
no exaggeration. Snowy peaks, glaciers, rugged precipices, waterfalls,
foaming torrents, canyons, lakes like
vast sapphires and amethysts set in
the pine-clad mountains—these have
been flung together in unparalleled
profusion 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 spent glaciers came from the higher mountains
—the prospect grows more awe-inspiring with every mile,
till the  train   leaves the foothills for the real  Rockies— j
peaks that touch heaven for coldness.
The coloring is intense in the foregrounds; filled with soft
suggestion, with unguessed witchery of semi-tonal 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 than summer 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 j
cataract is like spun glass.   The huge bulk of a tireless and  |
age-old glacier is milky green.   The rocks are of every shade
and subtle blending that 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 and finished North America, the Canadian
Government has preserved four National Parks which dwarf
into insignificance any other parks in the world.   There is
Rocky Mountains Park, with headquarters at Banff; there is I
Yoho Park, reached from Field and Emerald Lake; there is
Glacier Park, on the slopes of the Selkirk Mountains, farther  j
west;   and   Revelstoke   Park,   overlooking   the   Columbia
Valley.   Altogether there are nearly 170 miles of the most
wonderful carriage roads in the world; there are pony trails  j
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  i
the Highway of the Great Divide, from Banff, over Vermilion
Pass by way of the Sinclair Canyon to the 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   j
prairie to Calgary (which appeared like the magician's pillar  |
when the road tapped the plain), and from Calgary to the coast
over the Kicking Horse and through the Connaught Tunnel.
The track was laid despite unthinkable 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 passenger was hauled from Field to
Hector by five huge locomotives. To-day that old 4.5 grade
has been reduced, by means of tunnels, to 2.2 per cent.
Two of the tunnels were engineered in spiral form. The
first goes 3,200 feet into Cathedral Mountain and out again,
issuing 54 feet higher up than it entered.   The second, under
Mount Ogden, contains 2,910 feet of curving excavation and
secures a rise of 45 feet. The sight-seer 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 same work that used to call for four.
Until December, 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 in North 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 after 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 up to 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 it,
is no less enchanting when you arrive, and you arrive hungry.
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. There is boating and fishing at the cosy little
chalet on the lake which lies, as green as English grass, in its
setting of sombre hills. 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 chiselled path of a primeval glacier, like a vast, dry torrent
bed.   A marmot whistles eerily, and perhaps you catch a sight
Page Two 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 spoken
word.
The Twin Falls themselves are two huge roaring curtains
of spray, their feet hidden in perpetual 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
Valley Railway to Southern British Columbia. There are
wonderfully beautiful waters and mountains all the way.
The Kettle Valley Railway is the youngest twig on the
Canadian   Pacific  tree.    It   opens   the   charming   big-fruit
country of the Okanagan.

BANFF
SITUATED in the heart of the Rocky Mountains Park
of Canada,  a great national playground covering  an
area of over 2,700 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. Prices $2.00 per
day and up.    (European plan.)
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 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 all within easy walking
distance, and afford climbs not exceeding one day.
The Animal Paddock, \yi miles from the town towards
Lake Minnewanka, and containing buffalo, elk, moose, mountain goat and mountain sheep, the Zoo and Museum, and
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 stern beauty with a plentiful supply of fish, Bankhead
and its anthracite mines, Johnson Canyon, with a fine waterfall, westward sixteen miles from Banff, and situated in the
midst of a panorama of snowy peaks, and the "loop drive"—
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.
INDIAN POW-POW
There are a number of Indians in various reservations
near Banff. An annual "pow-wow" of sports, races, etc.,
is held during the month of July.

LAKE LOUISE
THE Pearl of the Canadian Rockies (altitude, 5,645 feet).
"Probably the most perfect  bit of scenery in the
known   world.     A   lake  of  the   deepest  and   most1
exquisite   coloring,   ever  changing,  defying  analysis,  mirroring in its wonderful depths the sombre forests and cliffs i
that rise from its shores on either side, the gleaming white
glacier and tremendous snow-crowned peaks thatfill the back- ;
ground of the picture, and the blue sky and fleecy clouds overhead"—Lawrence J. Burpee, in "Among the Canadian Alps." !
On the shores of the lake the Canadian Pacific operates j
a magnificent Chateau hotel—open from June 1st to Septem-!
ber 30th. j
Some there are who are satisfied to sit on the verandah of f
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 j
selection from which to choose.   The hotel itself occupies j
a very large area and has recently been greatly enlarged, j
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 Canadan Pacific Rockies.
Charges, $2.00 per day and upwards. European plan.]
The hotel has 320 bedrooms. I
LAKE LOUISE PROMENADE .
Along the westerly shores of Lake Louise to the  boat j
landing (distance, \yi miles), a delightful walk along a level
trail with splendid views of Castle Crags, Mount Lefroy and
Mount Victoria. s
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 estab-
Jished on the shore of Lake Agnes.    The trail is now continued j
around Lake Agnes and up a zigzag path to the Observation
House on the Big Beehive. j
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 j
followed to the summit of Mount St. Piran (altitude, 8,681 ,
feet), or the right branch to 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 I
Lake, and continues along the side of the mountain to Look- [>■■
out 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.
SADDLEBACK CABIN
Grossing the bridge 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, 9,001 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 Paradise Valley 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, distant four miles. Parties
should not venture out on the ice unless properly equipped,
and, indeed, the services of a guide 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 feet thick. The summit
of Mount Victoria is five 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 interesting rock formation known as the Tower of Babel. For the past few
summers a small permanent tea house and camp for anglers
has been maintained on the shores of Moraine Lake.
PARADISE VALLEY
Ponies may be taken up Paradise Valley, via either the
Saddleback and Sheol Valley, or via the low trail. The
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; and the journey, eight hours.
SENTINEL PASS
Via either the high or low route, Paradise 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 Chateau by the carriage road.
CONSOLATION LAKE
Leave the Chateau in the morning by automobile or carriage
for Moraine Lake. From here the journey may be continued
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
Page Eight 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 the 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
are attached to the Chateau Lake Louise for those who wish
to visit the glaciers, climb mountains, or make some of the
more strenuous trips through the passes. As they are greatly
in demand, it is advisable to make arrangements well in
advance.    Rates, $5.00 per day.

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. There is plenty of
choice, for, according to a list recently
completed from Government measurements, there are 147 peaks over 10,000
feet, of which 46 are over 11,000 feet.
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 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."

FIELD
NESTLING at the foot of Mount Stephen, a giant that
towers 6,000 feet above the railway and the Kicking
Horse River, Field is the stopping-off point for Emerald Lake and the famous Yoho Valley.
EMERALD LAKE
An excellent carriage road crosses the Kicking Horse River
at Field to the base of Mount Burgess, and leads through a
forest of balsam and spruce to Emerald Lake, seven miles
distant. This beautiful lake, of most exquisite coloring and
sublimity of surroundings, lies placid under the protection
of Mount Wapta, Mount Burgess and Mount President. It
is well stocked with fish and its vicinity affords many charming excursions on foot. A picturesque two-storey log chalet
has been erected on the shores of the lake, and is operated
by the Canadian Pacific. Here the tourist may break his
journey en route to the Yoho Valley. (Rates, $5.00 and up,
American plan.)
TAKAKKAW FALLS
From Emerald Lake an excellent trail leads up through forests to the Yoho Pass (altitude 6,000 feet),where it is joined
by the trail from Field over Mount Burgess. Reaching the
summit by pony, a wonderful view is obtained. Summit
Lake, a small, but beautifully colored lake, is passed, and
thence descent is made into the Yoho Valley, the objective
being Takakkaw Falls, These wonderful falls have a sheer
drop of 1,200 feet, forming one high ribbon of water descending from precipitous cliffs in clouds of foam. (Distance,
Emerald Lake to Takakkaw, six miles.) Camp for the night
can be made here if necessary.
YOHO GLACIER
From Takakkaw a trail can be taken into the upper part of
the valley, past Laughing Falls and the Twin Falls (two vast
columns of water that drop almost perpendicularly) to the
Yoho and President glaciers and the Waputik ice field. The
Yoho Glacier is one of the most interesting in the Canadian
Rockies, and is highly picturesque. It usually ends in a very
beautiful ice arch, from which a stream gushes with great
violence. A splendid side trip can be made up the little Yoho
to one of the former camps of the Alpine Club of Canada.
The return can be made by a higher trail, which goes part
way up Yoho Peak, and a wonderful panorama is afforded of
the entire Yoho Valley, the Cathedral Range across the
Kicking Horse Valley, and the Wapta and Daly glaciers.
YOHO  ROAD
An alternative route from Field to the Yoho Valley is
by carriage road. This is one of the finest long drives in the
Rockies (round-trip distance, twenty-two miles). The road
crossing the Kicking Horse River follows the milky glacier-
fed stream to where it joins the Yoho River, near the entrance of the valley at Mount Field, round which it swings
and up the valley until some precipitous cliffs are reached.
Up these it zigzags to a higher level, ending a short distance
past the Takakkaw Falls.
BURGESS PASS
Yet another route to the Yoho Valley is over the Burgess
Pass. The pony trail from Field rises up the wooded slopes
of Mount Burgess to the pass (altitude, 7,150 feet), from
which a magnificent panoramic view of the surrounding
mountain ranges may be obtained. Continuing along the
slopes of Mount Wapta the trail is almost level until the
Yoho Pass is reached,'whence descent is made to either
Takakkaw Falls or to Emerald Lake.
OTTERTAIL ROAD
A delightful drive from Field along the old grade, the
round-trip distance being sixteen miles to the Ottertail Valley,
up which a magnificent view of the triple-headed Mount
Goodsir may be had.
FOSSIL BEDS
The famous Mount Stephen fossil beds are reached from
Field by a pony trail which rises to an elevation of 6,000 feet
above the sea level. The fossil beds are over 2,000 feet in
thickness.
DENNIS AND DUCHESNAY PASSES
A very fine one-day climbing trip, commencing at Field,
and traversing the gap (Dennis Pass) between Mount Stephen
and Mount Dennis, and from there to Duchesnay Pass. The
descent is made to a beautiful valley under the shadow of
the precipitous crags of Mount Odaray, the valley being followed until the Lake O'Hara trail is reached. The climber
should not fail to pay a visit to the lake, one of the most
beautiful in the Rocky Mountains. The return to the railway
(distant eight miles) from Lake O'Hara, is made by way
of an excellent trail to Hector Station. From here, Field
may be reached by train or, better still, by walking down the
old grade until the Yoho Road connection is reached.
UPPER BOW LAKE
One trip that will especially appeal to the enthusiastic
Alpine climber is that from the Yoho Valley to Upper Bow
Lake. This lake is a source of the Bow River, and lies at a
distance of about nineteen miles northwest from Lake Louise
as the crow flies, at an altitude of 6,400 feet above sea level.
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.
The valley is followed up to the forefoot of the Yoho Glacier,
through the meadows above the left side, and then up the
Balfour Glacier. The Vulture Col is then crossed to Christmas Peak, or St. Nicholas, to the right-hand branch of the
Bow Glacier, from which descent is made by canyon and
stream to the upper end of Upper Bow Lake. This makes a
most interesting and delightful trip, the time from Yoho
Glacier to the lake occupying about one day's tramp and climb.
SWISS GUIDES
Visitors in the vicinity of Emerald Lake who wish to obtain
the service of Swiss guides in their mountaineering excursions
can obtain them from Lake Louise by telephone.   (See page 9.)

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 Pacific
Hotel, is open July 1st to August 31st (rates $5.00 per day
and  upwards, American plan).
Sir Donald (10,808 feet) rises, a naked and abrupt pyramid,
to a height of a mile and a quarter above the railway. This
stately monolith was named after the late Sir Donald Smith
(Lord Strathcona), one of the promoters of the Canadian
Pacific Railway. Farther to the left are sharp peaks—Uto,
Eagle, Avalanche 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 south side of Bear Creek, comes Cheops, so named
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 and is easily
reached in one hour by way of an excellent trail. The
return trip may be taken along the alternative trail on the
east bank of the Illecillewaet River.
ASULKAN VALLEY AND GLACIER
(Altitude, 4,100 to 6,600 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 Asulkan Glacier,
distant four miles from the hotel. This is one of the most
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 eft 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.
CASCADE SUMMERHOUSE
Starting from the Swiss guides' Chalet, a path leads up
the lower slopes of Mount Avalanche to the Cascade Sum-
merhpuse, perched at an altitude of 5,252 feet.
From this point the cascade tumbles in a series of leaps
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 point.
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 amphitheatre may be taken 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 distant five and one-half miles from the Baloo Pass.
NAKIMU CAVES
With beautiful interior marble markings, situated 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. G. H.
Deutchman, the discoverer, is official guide. Parties may
arrange to take lunch and have same at the cabin, situated
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 the glacier. 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.
Page Eighteen 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 those
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 9,176 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 and from
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 at the Hotel and are
available for the service of tourists for the fee of'Sj.oo per day.
The guides provide rope, ice axes, etc., and visitors intending
to climb should be equipped with stout boots, well nailed.

OKI THE
WHILE hunting is forbidden
within the National Parks in
the Canadian Pacific Rockies,
there is magnificent sport to be had outside the Park limits, and the Canadian
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
country reached from Revelstoke, being
particularly promising hunting grounds.
The best time to hunt is in May.
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 excellent
weapons of defence against his
enemies. He is the most daring of all
mountain-climbers, fearless, surefooted, and delights in scaling great
heights and taking perilous leaps
across chasms. His coat is white, soft
and fluffy, and the color has the effect
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 without wings that can
follow him.
The Bighorn or Rocky Mountain
sheep is to-day considered the most
valued prize obtainable by the sportsman. Its home 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
thotxt. Byron Harmon

[p>A<OB[FD(g
over rocks 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 will
secure a successful shot.
The Lillooet District is a fine
country for hunting the common Bighorn. The town of Lillooet, reached
by stage from Ashcroft or Lytton, is
a good outfitting centre. Here guides
can be picked up and all essentials for
atrip obtained.
Golden is the main line junction
point for the Kootenay sheep country,
which is probably the most accessible
of any, though the country is rough
and somewhat difficult. Invermere
(station Athalmer, seventy-four miles
south of Golden) is a good starting point.
There is splendid goat hunting in
the higher ranges of the creeks, which
descend from the Selkirks into the
Upper Columbia Valley. These are
reached from the Kootenay Central
branch of the Canadian Pacific Railway.
Concerning the unique picture of
two panthers, taken near Chase, B. C,
the following is the story.
"This photograph was taken by a
man who was photographer by
summer and trapper by winter. He
was very fond of photographing wild
animals, and was out with his camera
and saw these two panthers playing
together. He stole up behind a bunch
of bushes to try to snap them. When
he was ready he moved to one side
and they both jumped for the tree.
He snapped them as they were starting up the tree and afterwards shot
them with a pistol."

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 canoe 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. While the run can
be made in a day, to do the trip justice it should be extended
over two or three days. 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
fly-fishing   months.    Rocky   Mountain  Whitefish   are  also
plentiful.
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
In 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 fishing in this stream
quite close to Lake Louise station.
There is some fishing to be had in Moraine Lake, nine
miles from Chateau Lake Louise, over a well-maintained
auto and carriage road, but it cannot really be commended
for its fishing possibilities. The opportunities are much
better in Consolation Lake, three miles beyond, over pony
trail. 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 to the advantage of the
angler.
FIELD, B.C.
Emerald Lake (seven miles from Field 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
Page Twenty-feus' 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 centre, 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 take 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.
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 can be obtained at rate of $3.00 per
day, including use of boat. It is advisable to write in advance
to proprietor of the Lodge, Mr. Robt. Cowan, Fish Lake,
Kamloops, B. 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 about 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. Average charge about $6.00 per day.
For row boats $1.00 per day.
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.
SALMON ARM, B. C.
Another point from which one may fish the Shuswap 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 Kamloops
Trout run as high as seven or eight pounds and the Silver and
Dolly Varden up to fourteen or fifteen pounds.
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.
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.
Page Twenty-five At Lake Minnewanka
-fiocisiiis
THE Thompson River is well worth
attention of the angler and a
visit to any of the places
mentioned will afford good sport amid
pleasant surroundings. While the fish
are not very large on the average,
they are great fighters and the swift
water adds considerable zest and
interest to the fishing.
NORTH BEND, B. C.
About five miles from North Bend
there is a lake from which the Cisco
River flows, where fishing in the fall
is very good, the fish coming up from
the sea by way of the Fraser River.
Comfortable hotel accommodation
available.
There are Rainbow, Cut-Throat and
Dolly Varden Trout and occasionally
a Steelhead and Cohoe Salmon.
FLIES AND SPOONS
Flies, spoons and baits vary, of
course, according to locality, water
conditions and date. An expert fisherman who has fished all the waters of
the Rocky Mountains has furnished
the following list of flies:
Alexandra, Black Ant, Black Gnat,
Black Midge, Brown Hackle, Butcher,
Cowdung, Dusty Miller, Gray Hackle,
Green Sedge, Hardy's Favorite Montreal, Jock Scott, King of the Waters,
Montreal, March Brown, Parmacheene
Belle, Professor, Red Ant, Red Palmer,
Red Spinner, Royal Coachman,Salmon,
Silver Doctor, Silver Jock Scott,
Silver Wilkinson, Spent Gnat, Teal
and Orange, Teal and Red Grouse and
Claret, Wickam's Fancy. Sizes 5 to 11.
A Typical Vancouver Island River
Page Twenty-six Spoons—Devon Minnows, both silver and gilt, Victoria, large and small,
Tacoma, single and double, Stewart,
Siwash, Archer Phantom Minnow,
Mother of Pearl, Colorado, etc.
It is not advisable to rely upon
obtaining any of the above locally at
the fishing grounds; rather should the
fisherman include them in the equipment he takes with him. Further detailed information can be obtained
from the General Tourist Agent, Canadian Pacific Railway, Montreal. No
fishing license is required for fishing
in the Dominion Parks.
SAVE THE FORESTS
Canada's timber reserves are
national assets of incalculable value.
To neglect to take ordinary precautions
which ensure them against destruction
from forest fires is to rob civilization.
Quite apart from the danger 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 canoeists—
should consider it their duty to exercise every care to prevent loss from
fire. Small fires should be carefully
extinguished.

VANCOUVER
VANCOUVER is the largest Pacific Coast city in Canada,
with innumerable facilities for outdoor recreation.    It
is the main rendezvous for sportsmen and motorists.
The Hotel Vancouver ($2.00 per day and  up, European
plan) is the finest hotel on the north Pacific coast, with 520
guests' bedrooms.
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 length of time:
(1) Stanley Park, about one and one-halt hour's drive.
This is a natural park, encircled by a perfect road, which
passes through the celebrated big trees—giving a view of
Siwash Rock and the Lions, made famous by the writings of
the late Pauline Johnson, the Indian Princess Poetess.
(2) Marine Drive, two and one-half hours' drive. A
beautifully constructed road, taking the visitor through the
best residential parts of the city, including Shaughnessy
Heights and Point Grey, thence on to the mouth of the
celebrated Fraser River—with its fleets of salmon trawlers—•
and back along the beautiful coast scenery.
(3) Capilano Canyon, four hours. A recently completed
road, showing the Suspension Bridge, the Lions and the
source of Vancouver's water supply. The Pacific Highway,
including Kingsway, runs through the city, connecting up
with the main American roads of the Northwest.
GOLF
Vancouver has three good courses, and guests of the Hotel
Vancouver have special privileges at the Shaughnessy
Heights Golf Club.
(1) Shaughnessy Heights Golf Club. This is an eighteen-
hole course within fifteen minutes' drive from the hotel, and
recognized as one of the best links on the Pacific Coast. The
Pacific Northwest championships have been held here, the
excellence of the greens and fairways being greatly praised
by all competitors.
(2) Jericho Golf and Country Club. A nine-hole course,
running along the seashore, good greens and fairways. There
are four tennis courts and five bowling greens, and splendid
bathing in connection with the club.
(3) Vancouver Golf and Country Club, an eighteen-hole
course, some fifteen miles from the hotel by automobile
road. This course is beautifully situated and bids fair to bq
one of the best in the country.
TENNIS
There are a number of good tennis clubs; all have grass
courts. Members of any recognized tennis clubs can always
have the privilege of membership of the Vancouver Tennis
Club, which has eight courts and a beautiful clubhouse. The
Mainland & B. C. championships are played here and attract
a great deal of attention and enthusiasm.
BOATING
Burrard Inlet, English Bay and the North Arm are excellent
places for this pastime. Vancouver boasts of one of the finest
yacht clubs on the Pacific Coast, and this extends a hearty
welcome to members of recognized yacht clubs. The North
Arm is an ideal place for picnics and moonlight excursions,
and there are many opportunities arranged for the visitors to
indulge in these recreations.
STEAMER TRIPS
Sailing of any kind along the Pacific Coast is one of the
chief pleasures of the residents and is therefore popular with
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 steamer to Victoria, and E. & N. train to
Nanaimo, thence Nanaimo back to Vancouver by steamer.
SHOOTING
Within easy reach of Vancouver there is wonderful shooting
to be had. Grouse, duck, teal, mallard, snipe, pheasants,
partridges are plentiful in season.
Lulu Island, Sea Island, the North Shore, Seymour Flats
are all within an hour of the hotel.
FISHING
Space will not permit to give full details of the fishing to be
had near Vancouver, but it is extremely doubtful whether
there is another city on the coast where such a variety could
be obtained. In season, salmon, spring, cohoe and tyee, steel-
heads, Dolly Varden, rainbow, cut-throat and sea trout are
plentiful. Arrangements have been made by the hotel, 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. Flies in most use are Hardy's
Favorite, Palmers, Royal Coachman, King of the Waters,
Professor, Zulu, Montreal, for trout. Silver Doctor, Jock
Scott, any standard sea trout fly, are good for the sea trout.
Siwash, Tacoma, Victoria and Stewart Spoons are all good.
Devon Minnows, gilt or silver, are also good.
VICTORIA, B. C.
The Garden City of Canada, and a favorite resort both
summer and winter, owing to its delightfully mild climate.
Situated on Vancouver Island overlooking the Straits of Juan
de Fuca, the outlook across the blue waters to the snow-capped
Olympic Mountains on the mainland is remarkable. It is the
capital city of British Columbia and, owing to the characteristic
beauty of its residential district, it has often been called "A
bit of England on the shores of the Pacific." Although largely
a resort and residence city, it does a flourishing business,
Page Twenty-eight '< J &   l-
IMMmmm
MATT  T© P© A?
w   ..:
being the centre for the lumbering, fishing and whaling industries of Vancouver Island. The motor roads are excellent,
the drive north to Campbell River being one of the most
spectacular in the world. Golf can be enjoyed every day of
the year on excellent courses. The fishing and shooting is
of the best—trout, salmon, pheasant, grouse, cougar, bear,
deer and moose being the prize of the sportsman. The
Empress Hotel, most westerly of the Canadian Pacific chain,
overlooks the beautiful harbor. Rates $2.00 per day and
upward.    European plan.
BEACON  HILL PARK
One of city's public parks, contains 300 acres, laid out as
recreation grounds and pleasure gardens. Artificial lakes and
rustic bridges make the park very picturesque. Magnificent
view from Beacon Hill across Straits, of Olympic Mountains,
fifteen minutes' walk from hotel. Park is included in tally-ho
trip and in all sight-seeing trips in the city.
PARLIAMENT BUILDINGS
Seat of the British Columbia Provincial Government.
A handsome structure, overlooking the harbor, which cost
in the neighborhood of $2,500,000. Cars to Beacon Hill
pass every few minutes.
PROVINCIAL MUSEUM
Very complete and interesting. Contains a large assortment of specimens of natural history, native woods, Indian
curios and prehistoric instruments. There are three other
museums, namely, Agriculture, Horticulture and Mining.
The museums are open to visitors from 9.00 a.m. to 5.00 p.m.
daily, and 2.00 to 4.00 p.m. on Sunday.
PROVINCIAL LIBRARY
In the Provincial Buildings, and one of the finest in existence. Its historical prints, documents, and other works
are of such value and interest as to occupy people for days
at a time.
GOLF
Two eighteen-hole courses, which are very convenient,
are open to visitors. They are well kept and of fine location.
Application for a day's play should be made to Hotel Manager.
The Victoria Golf Club Links are reached in twenty minutes
by street car, and the Colwood Bay Links are reached by E. &
N. train or automobile. Green fees for either club, $1.00
week days; $2.00 Saturday and Sunday.
BRENTWOOD
A charming resort, fifteen miles from city, reached by
street car or automobile. Situated on Saanich Inlet. There
is a modern country hotel, beautifully finished in Old English
style, and excellent facilities for boating, bathing, tennis,
billiards, pool and other recreations.
ESQUIMALT
For many years Great Britain's only naval station on the
Pacific Coast. The Dock Yard has been handed over to the
Canadian Government, and is now the base on the Pacific
Coast for the Canadian and Imperial navies. A branch of the
famous Yarrows Limited, of England, is situated here and is
a repair centre for many ships. Four miles from Victoria,
reached by street car or road.
SAANICH  MOUNTAIN OBSERVATORY
Reached by splendid auto road or interurban car. Selected
as observatory site, owing to Vancouver Island's equable
climate. The new telescope, which has a 72-inch reflector,
has just been installed and is the largest in the world. The
observatory, in addition to being of interest itself, commands
from its site one of the finest views on the Pacific Coast.
STRATHCONA PARK
A new National Park of 785 square miles. Reached over
the Island Highway. The lakes and streams abound with
trout and salmon, and the motoring is excellent.
FISHING
Trout—Prospect Lake, reached by interurban or automobile; Shawinigan Lake, E. & N. train or auto.; Cowichan
Lake or River, Koksilah River, Cameron Lake, Great Central
Lake or Campbell River, Strathcona Park, reached by E. & N.
or automobile. There is salmon fly-fishing, also, on Cowichan
River and Campbell River, and salmon trolling off Dallas Road
and Beacon Hill, Oak Bay and Saanich Inlet (^Brentwood).
SHOOTING
There is excellent bird shooting and big game hunting on
the Island. Sportsmen should communicate with Vancouver
Island Development League, at Victoria.
MOTORING
Considering the size of the Island, there are possibly more
good motor trips radiating from Victoria than any other place
in America. Auto owners from United States who wish to
tour Vancouver Island can bring their cars into Canada for
one month without any formalities beyond the signing of registration card at point of entry, and if it is desired that longer
stay be made, the usual bond is easily arranged. Among the
most popular trips are: Victoria, Marine Drive and Mount
Douglas Park, 25 miles; Little Saanich Mountain Observatory and Brentwood, 33 miles; tour of Saanich Peninsula,
45 miles; the famous Malahat Drive to Shawinigan and
Duncan, Island Highway, 41 miles; Nanaimo, via Parks-
ville to Cameron Lake,40 miles,over Alberni Summit,57 miles;
the Grand Island Highway Tour—Victoria, Duncan, Nanaimo,
Cameron Lake, Port Alberni, Qualicum and Campbell River,
and the entire Georgian Circuit International Tour, the
greatest and most complete scenic tour on the Continent
