Skagway, Alaska
THE Pacific is the greatest and the last of
oceans—the greatest in extent, the last to
be discovered by the modern world and to be
made a theatre for maritime history. Europe
met at its christening. Asia to-day crosses it
to find the home of hopes come true. Of all
the lands bordering its far-flung coasts, British
Columbia is in some respects the most promising
to the settler as well as the most picturesquely
varied to the tourist.
It was in 1745, when the French regime was
drawing to a bloody-flowered close in Quebec,
that Michael Novidskof sailed eastward in his
moss-calked, skin-sewn shallop in pursuit of sea
otter till he touched the antenna of a continent,
in the Island of Attu. Other Russian fur traders
followed. The whole slender, volcanic Aleutian
chain gradually became known to them—flat,
mist-drenched islands, given over in the main to
seals and sea birds. But though Russia touched
Alaska, she turned back across the Pacific and
there is no record of her having entered British
Columbia.
Meantime France was reconnoitering from the
east. La Verendrye crept across the vast prairies,
sighted the foothills, saw, perhaps, the looming
peaks beyond.    Later, in 1751, de Niverville fol-
PACIFIC (OAST rjOK
lowed, made his way up the muddy waters of the
Saskatchewan, built Fort Lajonquiere and would
doubtless have ventured into the wonderland of
the Rockies but that tidings out of the east called
him to help Montcalm against the invading British. Thus France, too, came to the gateway of the
Land of Promise and passed by on the other side.
In 1774 the Indians of British Columbia sighted
their first vessel, a great-winged bird of happy
omen they thought, bearing its Spanish captain,
Juan Perez, in search of new land in which to
plant a cross and raise gold. In 1769 the colonization of California began, but was not pressed
northward, halcyon shores to the south being
more attractive to the good friars who loved
gardens as well as souls. Thus Spain came to
British Columbia, traded in furs at its doorway
and sailed away again.
Fate had reserved the conquest of tremendous
peaks, the settling of warm, secluded, sundrenched fruit valleys for the only race fitted to
join them up to the rest of the world by rail—the
Anglo-Saxon.
In 1792 Captain Vancouver sailed from England
in the "Discovery/' rounded the Horn and left
his name as a gift for a great island and a greater
city on the Canadian Coast. A year later Alexander Mackenzie, seasoned by terrific hardships
endured in descending his mighty godchild, the
Mackenzie River, in its rush to the Arctic, pushed
through the Rockies by the Peace River Pass and
stood beside the Pacific. He was a partner in the
North West Company, great rival of the Hudson
Bay, and northern British Columbia soon became
a kingdom ruled by a monarch, the Scottish Chief
Factor, who knew nor fear nor favor and lived for
naught but furs. Simon Fraser was another
Nor'wester, who ran the rapids of the river which
bears his name and reached the Pacific in 1806.
What with the rivalries of the Hudson Bay, the
Nor'westers and the subsequently formed Pacific
Fur Company, to say nothing of tribal warfare
among the Indians, the Coast in the early nineteenth century became a spectacular spot. In '58
an additional element of lawless picturesqueness
was stirred in by the advent of 30,000 gold-
seekers, who rushed north from San Francisco
bound for the rumor-land around the Fraser and
Thompson rivers. Just here the British Government stepped in and made the future province
into a colony as the one means of anchoring it to
its native mountains.
So far British Columbia had been the land of
the trail-hitter.    No man could win through the THROUGH
• THE -
terrific defiles of the Rockies or round the gale-
smashed Horn unless he were of the pioneer breed
and carried his life slung along with his rifle.
But when law and order came north of "53" it was
time for respectability and a railroad.
In 1871 the Canadian Pacific was begun; eleven
different surveys across the mountain^ were
patiently worked out, only that ten of them might
be ruthlessly cast aside. It was not till November 7, 1885, that the last spike was driven linking
the Pacific Coast of Canada with the Atlantic.
To-day the tourist may join the annual pilgrimage of happy pleasure seekers who visit Banff,
may stand on some conquered peak from which
the endless mountain prospect radiates four
hundred miles to the Pacific, a thousand to the
Arctic, a thousand and more southward.
He may travel to matchless Lake Louise,
where Nature has composed her mountains, her
glaciers, her forests, into a picture as endlessly
changing in light effect as it is forever fixid and
satisfying in wonder of line and balance of color-
mass.
Seated in a comfortable observation chcjur car,
he may glide down the Kicking Horse Canyon,
where, in 1883, Sir Sanford Fleming reporded
that he and his guides and his cayuseS were
"from five to eight hundred feet high on a path
of from ten to fifteen inches wide and a| some
points almost obliterated, with slopes above and
below us so steep that a stone would roll irito the
torrent in the abyss below!"
Leaving the Rockies, the tourist may dash
through the Columbia Valley and up into the
mighty Selkirks. He may dip south into the
orchards of the Okanagan country; he may reach
Vancouver city and take passage across the
Pacific. Or he may take a Canadian Pacific
steamer up the coast to marvellous Alaska/where
volcano and glacier are set beside each other and
the fiord country rivals Norway, where the
salmon cannery beats the gold mine and the fur
seal grows fat and lusty in the protected Prlbilofs.
Finally he may come back again acrqss the
width of a mighty continent by different vlays of
equal comfort, without once leaving tm lines
of what is the world's greatest highwaj/, the
Canadian Pacific Railway.
INTRODUCTION TO THE ROCKIES
FROM the roof garden of the Palliser Hotel
at Calgary, one can see the glistening peaks
of the Canadian Pacific Rockies sixty miles away.
Their call is irresistible—like a magnet they pull
the trains of eager travellers. As the train glides
into the Gap, the little worn-out adjectives drop
away, the cheap, trite phrases, the descriptive bits
that have been multigraphed until the copy blurs.
For 500 miles the Canadian Pacific Railway
follows the wild canyons that the rivers have dug,
brawling, glacier-fed, about the feet of the giant
peaks. For 500 miles the engine crawls among
the giant folds of their robes, where man and
his scratched-in-the-rock roadbed are all out of
drawing for very littleness.
BANFF
BANFF is the capital of Rocky Mountain Park,
which, with Yoho and Glacier parks, contains
some one hundred and seventy miles of carriage
road, with radiating trails innumerable. Here
the Canadian Pacific Railway has placed the most
beautifully situated and luxuriously comfortable
mountain hotel in the world, overlooking the
junction of the Bow and the Spray rivers. Within
easy reach are gentle climbs and gorgeous panoramas, the picturesque and brilliantly colored
terraces of the Hot Springs; together with stiff and
challenging ascents like that of Mount Edith for
the proved Alpinist, who will doubtless make his
headquarters with the Alpine Club of Canada, on
the slopes of Sulphur Mountain.
Buffalo and other animals at Banff, both caged and at
large, are a never-failing source of interest.
Lake Minnewanka is the home of huge and fighting
trout, a forty-seven pounder being on exhibition at the
chalet.
Excellent golf links have been laid out at Banff and
there are beautiful river trips.
DRIVES AND PONY TRIPS AT BANFF
There are numerous interesting spots in the vicinity,
all easily accessible by good carriage roads and bridle
paths. A short distance from Banff Springs Hotel are
the Bow Falls, a cataract of wonderful beauty; Tunnel
Mountain, from which a splendid view of the valley is
obtained, and the Cave and Basin, a remarkable formation from which gush natural sulphur springs. Within
a radius of three miles are the Hoodoos, natural concrete
pillars of various shapes and sizes, Cascade Mountain,
Stoney Squaw Mountain, the beautiful Vermilion Lakes,
the animal paddocks and Sun Dance Canyon, a deep and
curious cleft in the mountain.    At a distance of nine miles
is Lake Minnewanka, a pretty sheet of water, extremely
deep and walled in by tremendous cliffs. The lake is
sixteen miles long, with a width of from one to two miles.
Two launches make the round trip daily. A wonderful
river trip up the Bow can also be made by electric launch.
LOVELY LAKE LOUISE
j AKE LOUISE bears the liquid music, the
*— soft color notes of its name into the realm of
the visible. Behind its turquoise mirror rise the
stark immensities of Mounts Lefroy and Victoria,
the latter, "the big snow mountain above the Lake
of Little Fishes," of which the wandering Stonies
used to tell. Here, on the margin of this most
perfect lake, the Canadian Pacific has placed its
Chateau in one of those wonderful upland flower
gardens in which the Rockies abound. Yellow
violets and columbines, white anemones and
green orchids, make merry with the red-flowered
sheep laurel and the white-tufted Labrador tea.
Be he never so lazy, the tourist has something to
reward him in this gay garden backed with the
rich-toned lake and the milky green of the glacier.
Lake Agnes, "the Goats' Looking Glass/' as the Indians
used to call it, is a wild tarn shut in by sombre cliffs, a
thousand feet above Lake Louise. Here the great white
anemone blooms by the late snowdrift and there is the
Silence of eternity among the high hills. It is reached
from the hotel by an easy trail which also takes in the
lovely Mirror Lake. The trail continues to the Big Beehive,
commanding a magnificent panorama of lake, glacier
and mountain.
It is a three-mile trip to Saddleback Mountain, which
commands an inspiring view of the famous Paradise
Valley. At a distance of about ten miles is Moraine
Lake, situated at the head of the valley of the Ten Peaks
and reached over a good carriage road recently constructed.
Good camping facilities are afforded on the shore of the
lake in the midst of scenic surroundings of surpassing
beauty and grandeur. The Victoria Glacier, a great
palisade of hanging snow, Abbott Pass, a deep canyon
between Mounts Victoria and Lefroy, O'Hara Lake, set
amid surroundings of wild Alpine grandeur, Cataract
Creek, Paradise Valley and the Ptarmigan Lakes are
among the notable spots well worthy of a visit. The new
Upper Glacier Trail to Victoria Glacier is of exceptional
interest and beauty.
THE SPIRAL TUNNELS
NEAR Hector is the Great Divide. There
are two streams here issuing together and
getting out, the one east, the other west, on their
long journeys to two oceans. Between Hector
^nd Field the Canadian Pacific has driven through
the solid rock, two ingenious, spiral tunnels, which
reduce the old 4.5 grade to 2.2.

FIELD
MOUNT STEPHEN is the most ilimbed
mountain in the Rockies. Anybody can
do it with pluck; everybody wants to do it; and
the Canadian Pacific Railway, by the placing of
its hotel under the lea of the great peak, invites
them to try. Other near-by sights are the
Natural Bridge, the silver mines high up on the mountain
side, and the Fossil Beds, which annually draw geologists
from all over the continent.
Field is also the headquarters for the Yoho Valley
trips. Emerald Lake, green as its name, is a seyen-mile
carriage drive, at the end of which tea may be had in
the cosy little chalet. Takakkaw means "It is wonderful I"
And even the stoical Indian had to admit that the falls
that now bear this curious name deserved the exclamation.
Sir James Outram says, "The torrent, issuing from an
icy cavern, rushes tempestuously down a deep winding
chasm till it gains the verge of the unbroken cliffs, leaps
forth in sudden wildness for 150 feet, and then in a
stupendous column of pure white sparkling water, broken
by giant jets descending rocket-like and wreathed in
volumed spray, dashes upon the rocks almost a thousand
feet below, and breaking into a milky series of cascading
rushes for five hundred feet more, swirls into the swift
current of the Yoho River." The fourteen-mile drive
to Takakkaw Falls is exceptionally beautiful.
A trail continues up the Yoho Valley, past Lpughing
Falls and the great Wapta Glacier, to the curious Twin
Falls, whose divided waters unite in one stream before
reaching the depths below. Other pleasant excursions
may be made to points of interest within a short distance
of Field—such as the Fossil Beds, Aerial Silver Mines,
Natural Bridge, Monarch Mine Cabins and the Grade
Reduction Loops.
At Golden one reaches the Columbia River, which
here flows north until it turns at the Big Bend for its
southward flow to the Pacific Ocean. Golden is the
junction for a new branch line of the Canadian Pacific
Railway, which runs between the Rockies and the Selkirk
Mountains and passes through highly picturesque
scenery past Lake Windermere to the Crowsriest line
of the Canadian Pacific Railway. The creeps which
open up the great Selkirk Range to the south of this valley
provide access to some of the most spectacular Alpine
scenery in North America, while the hunting and fishing
in season are also good. Invermere (station, Athalmer)
has a small but comfortable tourist hotel close to Lake
Windermere.
GLACIER
UNTIL December of last year the railway
climbed over the top of Rogers' Pass through
a gorge, subject in winter to heavy snowslides
against which the track was protected by four
miles of snowsheds. These are now evaded by
the double-track Connaught Tunnel, the longest
tunnel in North America, which pierces its way
through Mount Macdonald and reappears ir the
Illecillewaet Valley below Mount Sir Donald and
the Illecillewaet and Asulkan Glaciers. From portal to
portal this tunnel measures five miles, but so straight is
the line that the exits are never out of sight.
About a mile from the western exit is Glacier Hotel,
built by the Canadian Pacific Railway for the convenience of Alpine Climbers and others who wish to explore
the trails and visit the lakes, glaciers and caves of this
wonderful Alpine region. Almost at the back door of
the hotel is the great Illecillewaet Ice River. A comfortable carriage road leads to within a mile of the
Nakimu Caves, which are larger than the Mammoth
Caves of Kentucky, although only part have hitherto
been made accessible to the public. Swiss guides and
surefooted ponies are located at the hotel for the benefit
of those who wish to climb the glaciers and mountains
or ride the trails to heights commanding magnificent
panoramas.
PONY TRIPS AND MOUNTAIN CLIMBING
Leading from the hotel a good trail follows the
turbulent course of the Illecillewaet River to the Great
Illecillewaet Glacier and Valley; other trails branch off in
all directions, inviting and leading the mountain climber,
explorer and lover of Nature to scenes of marvellous
grandeur and enchanting beauty. Glacier Crest, Lake
Marion and Observation Point are among the shorter
and easier ascents. Mount Abbott is a day's climb, but
not a difficult one. From its summit an exceptionally
fine view is obtained of the Asulkan Valley. Easy trails
also lead up to the summits of Eagle Peak and Mount
Avalanche. The ascent of Mount Sir Donald is more
difficult, but with the assistance of experienced guides
may readily be accomplished.
An excellent trail leads to the Asulkan Glacier, through
scenes of Alpine splendour, and the recently discovered
Caves of Nakimu are only distant about seven miles
from Glacier House by a carriage road and bridle path.
These wonderful caverns have been formed by the action
of water for ages upon the solid rocks, and form a series of
chambers with large entrances, polished-rock ceilings and
walls which sparkle with quartz crystals and reflect
myriads of miniature lights from the darkness.
C. Deutschman, the discoverer of the Caves, acts as
official guide to visitors. A trail leads over Baloo Pass to
Rogers' Pass, by which return can be made to the hotel.
SWISS GUIDES
THE Company's own Swiss guides are stationed
at Lake Louise, Field and Glacier, and may be
engaged through the managers of the Canadian
Pacific Railway hotels.
From Glacier, the route descending the western slope
of the Selkirks follows the valley of the Illecillewaet
through Albert Canyon, a marvellous gorge of great
depth and startling fascination.
Revelstoke is an important centre, from which there
is water communication with the rich Kootenay and
Boundary districts.    A motor road is under construction
to the top of Mount Revelstoke, which has been converted into a National Park and is attracting increasing
numbers of summer visitors. At Sicamous an excellent
hotel is operated by the Canadian Pacific Railway, and
especially convenient for those who wish to stop off
somewhere and make the all-daylight trip through the
Canadian Pacific Rockies.
The Canyon of the Thompson is entered beyond
Ashcroft. Its angry waters rush along in a perfect
maelstrom, and after the junction with the Fraser at
Lytton the scenery assumes an even wilder aspect.
North Bend is situated in the heart of the Fraser Canyon,
amid awe-inspiring surroundings. At Petain, junction
is made with the new line of the Kettle Valley Railway,
providing rapid and picturesque connection with the
orchard and mining districts of Southern British Columbia.
Forty-two miles beyond Mission is Vancouver.
PRINCESS   STEAMSHIPS   BETWEEN
VANCOUVER, VICTORIA AND SEATTLE
THE short but interesting trip on Puget Sound
should not be omitted from the itinerary. If
requested when purchasing, it will be included
in through tickets without additional charge. (See route
No. 1, on map.)
The Company's Princess steamships, operating on
this route, are the fastest and best equipped in the Pacific
coastwise trade.
RAIL ROUTE TO SEATTLE
AT Vancouver, B. C, the Canadian Pacific
Railway connects with the Northern Pacific,
via Sumas, for Bellingham, Arlington, Everett,
Snohomish and Seattle.
This is an alternative route to Seattle and points south,
but tickets reading by rail will not be good via steamship,
or vice versa, between Vancouver and Seattle. .Route
No. 2, all rail.)
ALTERNATIVE ROUTE VIA THE KOOTENAY
DIVERGING from the main line of the Canadian Pacific at Medicine Hat, an attractive
alternative route, between Medicine Hat and
Revelstoke, is offered via the Crowsnest Pass Route,
affording a most delightful steamer trip on the Kootenay
River from Kootenay Landing to Nelson, continuing by
rail to West Robson, from which point another steamer
trip may be enjoyed through the beautiful Arrow Lakes
to Arrowhead, joining the main line at Revelstoke for
continuance of trip to Vancouver.
A new route passing through scenery of exceptional
beauty takes the traveller from Nelson, via Grand Forks
and Penticton and the orchard districts of the Okanagan
Valley, over the Kettle Valley Railway, rejoining the
main line at Petain. Grand Forks is the location of the
largest copper smelter in the British Empire, is the gateway to the Boundary mining district, and is the centre
of a fertile apple country. The Coquihalla Valley from
Summit to Hope provides great fishing.      ^fc^^e^^HPACiiric ■ COAS
THROUGH
• THB« TO CALIFORNIA
PASSENGERS en route to California have
the choice of either an overland trip or sea
voyage from North Pacific Coast points. From
Portland to San Francisco the picturesque Shasta Route,
of the Southern Pacific, or the San Francisco and Portland
Steamship Company may be used; from Victoria or Seattle
steamers of the Pacific Coast Steamship Company maintain a regular service to San Francisco and Los Angeles.
ALASKA
THE Canadian Pacific Railway operates a
weekly service between Victoria, Vancouver
and Skagway during the summer season, with its
own splendid Princess steamers.
VANCOUVER
THE Terminal of the Canadian Pacific's transcontinental rail lines and its trans-Pacific
steamship routes, is the largest commercial
centre in British Columbia, and has an excellent harbour
nearly landlocked and fully sheltered. It faces a beautiful range of mountains that are tipped with snow the
year round. Two peaks, silhouetted against the sky,
remarkably resembling two couchant lions, are visible
from almost any point in the city or on the harbour, which
has  appropriately  been termed "The Lions' Gate."
In and around Vancouver are immense lumber and
shingle mills. Mining, lumbering, farming and shipping
form the bulwark of the city's phenomenal growth and
prosperity.
All kinds of water sports are possible at Vancouver,
and are encouraged through a mild climate and extensive
bodies of water. There are many bathing beaches, parks,
boulevards, automobile roads and paved streets. Stanley
Park, one of the largest natural parks in the world, is
excellently maintained by the city.
Hotel Vancouver, of the Canadian Pacific Hotel System,
is second to none on the Pacific Coast, is conveniently
located and has a high reputation for the excellency of its
service. Wonderful views can be had from the roof of
this great hotel. Vancouver has an admirable golf course
at Shaughnessy Heights.
It is only a short run by Canadian Pacific Railway
steamer to Nanaimo, where the Esquimalt & Nanaimo
Railway connects with the beauty spots of Vancouver
Island.
From Vancouver, the Company's famous Princess
steamships offer splendid service to Victoria, Seattle,
Northern British Columbia and Alaska; the "White
Empresses" cross the Pacific to Japan and China. The
Canadian Australasian line runs regularly from Vancouver
to Honolulu, Suva (Fiji), New Zealand and Australia.
VICTORIA
CHARMINGLY situated on Vancouver Island,
overlooking   the   straits   of Juan  de  Fuca,
Victoria drinks in the sunshine and smiles at the
traveller. It is distinctly a home city, with fine roads and
beautiful gardens, although its enterprising business district, composed of imposing stores and tall office buildings, speaks of a rich commerce drawn from a territory
full of mineral and agricultural resources. Victoria's
beauty lies in her residential districts, her boulevards,
her parks and her public buildings. The Parliament
buildings of British Columbia rank among the handsomest in America.
The Empress Hotel, another of the chain of Canadian
Pacific institutions, gives the guest attention and service
equalled only by the best in the land. It overlooks the
inner harbour and is within a stone's throw of the
Parliament buildings. Golf facilities can be arranged for
visitors to the hotel.
From Victoria delightful excursions may be made into
the interior of Vancouver Island, either by automobile
or by the Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway. The Malahat
Drive is a luxuriously smooth and picturesque motor road.
Excellent hotels are to be found at Shawnigan Lake
and Qualicum Beach and a delightful little chalet inn at
Cameron Lake. Mount Arrowsmith proves one of the
best climbs and Qualicum Beach has a good, sporting
golf course. There is no better fishing on the Pacific
Coast than that which one finds on the Campbell River,
reached by motor from Courtenay, the northern terminus
of the Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway. The immense
Douglas fir forests on this beautiful island and the balmy
climate make it wonderfully attractive to the tourist.
SEATTLE
SPLENDIDLY located on Puget Sound, mountain-girt and fringed with lakes, Seattle is
the metropolis of the district she dominates.
Situated on seven hills, many of which have been greatly
altered by means of the steam shovel and the hydraulic
plant to make highways for traffic, Seattle overlooks a
beautiful harbour.
The gold fields of Alaska filter their treasure through
her industries and her stores. The lumber camps and the
farms of Washington add to her prosperity. The tallest
of her buildings is forty-two stories, exceeded only by
those of New York City.
TACOMA
TACOMA is to-day the second city in population in the State of Washington, situated on
a fine harbour, within easy access of many lakes
and mountains. Mount Rainier is virtually in her door-
yards; this isolated peak is 14,444 feet in height, perpetually snow-capped.
SPOKANE
SPOKANE has for years enjoyed the reputation of being one of the best lighted and
most prosperous cities in the West. Within but
short distances are huge smelters, mines, waterfalls,
power plants and delightful scenery.
PORTLAND
DORTLAND, Oregon, famous for its roses, is
■so located as to permit trips of widely diverse
nature. The steamer trip up the Columbia
Rivfcr into the Cascade Mountains is one of the most
interesting. The Columbia Highway is a motor road
leading along the bluffs overlooking the Columbia.
The ascent of Mount Hood requires only three or four
days from Portland for the entire trip.
SAN FRANCISCO
SAN FRANCISCO is the nucleus of a metropolitan district composed of a cluster of cities
pn the Bay. She possesses over 800 miles of
streets and 300 miles of street railway.
She revels in aquatic sports of all kinds, which are
made possible at any time of the year because of an
equable climate. History, too, has been kind to this city,
leaving relics of early Spanish settlements which will ever
be sights of interest.
Parks, elaborate and well designed, are thronged with
people. The largest, Golden Gate Park, containing 1,013
acres, is a veritable fairyland of loveliness. The cafes, of
which there are hundreds, are famed for their Bohemian
life and their good cooking.
LOS ANGELES
LOS ANGELES gladdens the eye with its
twenty-three public parks, containing 3,897
acres of lawns, flowers, hills, trees, and lakes.
The architecture is varied and suggests the different parts
of the world from which its residents have come. Famous
for its beautiful homes, lovely gardens and fine hotels, Los
Angeles is one of the most attractive cities in the United
States.      SANTA CATALINA ISLAND
RISING abruptly from the ocean to mountainous heights, Santa Catalina Island is
romantically beautiful. It lies off Los Angeles
harbour about twenty-three miles westward. Co'onies of
friendly seals inhabit its rocky points. Glass-bottomed
motor boats afford one astounding views of the strange
marine gardens below the surface, where vast ferns form a
dense forest peopled with fish of many colors and shapes.
SAN DIEGO AND CORONADO
T"HE Hotel del Coronado at San Diego occupies
■ grounds of royal beauty on the peninsula
between bay and sea. Polo tournaments in
winter and summer, with noted teams contesting for cups;
yacht races, tennis, deep-sea fishing contests under
auspices of the Coronado Tuna Club, motor picnics, golf
handicaps, and semi-weekly dances are among the amusements. FOREST FIRES
The careless smoker on an idle trail,
The smouldering camp fire and a vagrant breeze,
Make all your ancient pride of what avail,
You sad grey ghosts that once were stately trees?  feAtZIFIC • coast»t5U

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