There under skies italianate

sprawled hills and snow capped peaks are lakes, lovely as
giant aquamarines. Shuswap

a dozen lesser but still lovely
ones—they vie for favor in
the hearts of visitors. And by
steamer, rail and motor road
they are so conveniently linked

become veritably a land of
glorious pilgrimage.
It is an enchanted country — this

the Lakes, pleasant spots to live.

re v-?,   -'rfr THE      LAKE      DISTRICT
The Okanagan Valley is the farthest west
of this region called the Lake District of British
Columbia. It lies between the mountains of the
Gold Coast and the Cascades. The lake itself
is seventy miles long.
Tradition has it that Spaniards from California
visited the Valley long before 1812. Certain
it is, after that date fur-traders from Astoria
and Fort Vancouver, via the Columbia River,
blamed a trail up "Oukinnakin" Valley into the
land of the Shuswap Indians. And priests
established missions on its shores.
Fur traders gave place to cattle ranchers.
Cattle men to fruit growers. Now there is
little but picture writings on certain cliffs and
boulders to remind us of Indian life and warfare.
And visitors spend interesting, lazy hours
traversing the blue waters of its lake on a
comfortable Canadian Pacific steamer.
Okanagan Valley may be reached either via
Sicamous Junction on the Canadian Pacific main
line, or by Kettle Valley Railway from Nelson
to Penticton at the southern end of the lake.
But from whichever direction it is approached
its beauty is equally and serenely appealing.
There is no grimness about the almost rolling
hills each side Okanagan's blue waters. In
spring and early summer the unwooded lower
slopes are seas of lupin, gold-crested with sun'
flowers. The sharp contours of upper pine*
covered reaches melt becomingly into far
distances. Orchards, like squares of dark
emerald embroidery, crowd the "bench lands.1'
Small towns cluster in friendly fashion at
strategic points along its margin. And the heart
of man is gladdened with almost daily sunshine.
Comfortable hostelries beguile travellers into
lingering through spring and apple blossom
time, through summer when swimming is
rapture, till autumn crisps the nights and paints
a country vivid with color.
And in their due seasons bloom and ripen to
perfection, cherries, peaches and apricots, grapes,
pears and apples. For the land is under intensive
irrigation and is extremely fertile.
Pheasants are especially numerous in the
Valley where they seem to thrive better than
in any other part of British Columbia. Grouse
and quail also provide good shooting. Deer
invite the hunter. Back in the hills are bear.
In the Fall, landlocked salmon, locally called
"Kicaninnies," crowd the streams. Steelhead
and rainbow are caught in the Lake.
Penticton at the Southern end of the Okana'
gan is an inland resort of no mean repute. A
long sandy spit stretching beneath the waters
makes the Lake here very safe for children.
There is excellent hotel accommodation and
cuisine at the Incola fronting the Lake. Family
parties may also rent cottages in the neighbourhood.
The town, situated between two bodies of
water, Okanagan and Skaha Lakes, has an
elevation of 1,132 feet, and is cooled by a
prevailing wind from the Okanagan. A pictures-
que nine hole golf course, sports and dances at
the Aquatic Club and interesting motor drives
provide amusements.
At Summerland, half an hour's run north
and west by car, local artists design and make
very attractive pottery from Okanagan clay
leavened with ten per cent, of clay from Saskat-
chewan. These potteries and other handicraft
products are sold in a little log cabin on the
lake shore.
Another charming drive skirting the eastern
shore of the lake is to Naramata, twelve miles
north from Penticton.
South of Penticton beyond Skaha and Vas-
seaux Lakes lies the fruit growing country
round Oliver. A huge government irrigation
scheme has made of that once dusty valley a
region of amazing fertility. The choicest
varieties of canteloupes and melons besides all
kinds of orchard fruits are grown there.
Kelowna, half way up the east shore of the
lake, was once called Anse au Sable. Its Indian
name, Kelowna, means "Grimly Bear," but it is
usually thought of as the "Orchard City."
It has a splendid site on a fertile flat stretching
by gradations towards the hills, and many ways
of providing visitors with sport and pleasure.
There is an aquatic club with an attractive
club house in the City Park where dances are
held twice a week during th£ season. Kelowna
Regatta is the biggest of its kind in Canada,
with entries from far afield.
Tennis, badminton, swimming, fishing and
shooting all find their place on Kelowna's sports
programme. The links has eighteen holes—
one of which is built sportily into a small lake.
And Kelowna Golf Club boasts an enthusiastic
welcome to visitors.
Hotel accommodation here is excellent. Most
social activities of the town centre around "the
Royal Anne" on the main street. It has a
charming lounge of which Kelownaites are
justly proud, and which opens on to a tiny
but exquisite formal garden, bright with roses
and redolent with perfume.

Pdge Three THE      LAKE      DISTRICT
Five miles from south of Kelowna on the
lake shore stands the "Eldorado Arms." This
picturesque half timbered hostelry, owned by
Countess Bubna, is reminiscent of an old world
country house. A jolly many sided little place
is the "Orchard City," where equally successful
efforts are made to grow fields of onions, commercially valuable tobacco and conduct the
Okanagan Musical Festival; to fruit and dairy
farm and to hold there in perpetuity the Annual
Tennis Tournament for the championships of
the Interior of British Columbia.
Vernon, four miles from the head of Okanagan
Lake, and connected with the Canadian Pacific
steamer port of call at Okanagan Landing was
once called Priests1 Valley, after the missionaries
who came over the Lewis and Clarke trail
from the Mississippi in the second quarter
of the last century. Indeed Priests' Valley was
the name given the Post Office when it was
opened on September 1, 1884. It was changed
to Vernon in honour of Forbes George Vernon,
owner of the famous Coldstream Ranch and
at the time Chief Commissioner of Lands and
Work for the Province.
The town is the centre of an extensive
orchard district and looks its best when the
trees are in blossom. It is the judicial capital
for the Valley and possesses good hotel accommodation and a nine hole golf course.
Two miles from Town lies Kalamalka Lake,
an exquisite small sheet of water, surrounded by
orchard lands, where the residents of Vernon
have summer homes and visitors can rent cabins.
A sunset at Kalamalka is worth going miles to
see. There seems some peculiar iridescence
from the hills and surrounding atmosphere that
makes of its beauty an almost luminous glory.
Every town on the lake has a packing house
for fresh fruits, and a glimpse into one cannot
fail to prove interesting. Through the opened
door and windows blue lake and sunbrowned
hills. In the plant, mellow sunshine and deep
shadow. Workers moving expertly about their
appointed tasks: graders singing rhythmic songs
of modernity, over all the sweet perfume of
ripened fruit and an ageless sense of harvest
and fulfilment.
Sicamous, where the branch line from Okanagan Landing makes connection with the main
line is situated on Shuswap Lake with Mara Lake
in the immediate vicinity. Through centuries
one of the favourite fishing grounds of the
Indians, Shuswap continues as a Mecca for
white sportsmen. Just as soon as the ice clears,
along the first of April, they begin to arrive
from even the far places of the earth. Most of
the fishing is for Dolly Varden, Greys, Kamloops
and Steelhead trout. The Canadian Pacific
has a comfortable hotel here as a base for operations and boats and tackle can be hired
Shuswap Lake is an amazingly beautiful
body of water. It is shaped something like a
gigantic horseshoe and has an extensive shore
line of five hundred miles. Its Indian name
signifies "Sunset," and while at all times the
play of light and shadow on its surface reveals
an almost poignant beauty, at sunset it is
particularly lovely.
The Kettle Valley Railway, which links
the Okanagan Valley with the Kootenay district
in the South, runs through a country marvellously varied and interesting. By snaky curves,
trestle bridges and hairpin bends: across deep
ravines and tumbling turbulent mountain streams
the grade rises high above the Okanagan Valley.
Far below lies the lake, blue and fairy-like.
Naramata nestles at the base of orchards rising
bench on bench towards the hills. There are
brief pauses at little stations, deep in the heart
of the pines. An Olympian view of Kelowna.
Then through a country of tender shadows
and aromatic pungency into grassy plateaux
fringed with cotton woods and trembling
aspens, where wander herds of fat beef
At midway the Kettle Valley Railway joins
the Canadian Pacific. Rugged country again,
and ghosts of old mining towns like Greenwood,
to Grandforks, where mining has given place
to orchards. There is a prosperous settlement
of Doukhobors near Grandforks, though the
largest Doukhobor settlement is at Brilliant near
Nelson, where they also have a jam factory,
and make excellent strawberry jam.
The farms of the Doukhobor communities look
in wonderful condition and are models of
frugality and hard work. Men and women
work side by side in fields and orchards.
Cumbered with much clothing, women with
heads shawl-covered, men in slouch hats—
they bend their heavy peasant frames intently
on the work in hand and towards the furtherance
of community good. Little patches of Europe
transplanted to the New World and happier
From the Rockies to the Gold Coast Range
lies this district called "the Kootenays."
The Arrow Lakes, the Slocan, Kootenay
Lake and Lake Windermere are the largest and
best known of the lakes, but innumerable
smaller ones lie like jewels among its mountain
Flowers of a thousand hues star the slopes,
and shyly hide in shadow-filled ravines.
Scarlet pentstemons, larkspurs, blue as
summer skies, cama and mariposa lilies, harebells, columbines, orchids of many kinds and
gaillardias bloom in their seasons. There is
clarkia as pretty as the cultivated variety;
dodoctheon like a small pink cyclamen; trillium
and dog toothed violet; fire weed making glowing
purple pools on cleared land, and asters smoky
blue when Fall draws near. And these are
but some of the entire list. In June syringa and
roses perfume the air and spirea and honeysuckle vines are everywhere. The Kootenays
is a paradise for botanists as for beauty lovers
and sportsmen.
All the large lakes of the Kootenays with the
exception of Windermere, which being fed
by hot springs is too warm for fish, boast the
Kamloops trout. It is frequently caught up to
twenty-five pounds in weight. Lakes and rivers
swarm with the rainbow and cut-throat and the
creeks with mountain trout. In addition
eastern brook trout are being widely distributed. The federal hatcheries at Nelson and
the Rod and Gun Club at Cranbrook maintain
the supply.
Deer are everywhere among the hills. One
cf the prettiest and by no means infrequent
sights in a long day's journey is to see them
feeding on the banks of the Arrow Lakes.
Elk are found in the Windermere Valley.
Many localities, noticeably Lardeau, Kettle
Valley and Windermere have goat. Black
bear is universal and above the timber line,
in the Lardeau and Windermere, grizzlies.
The Lake system is a popular resort of waterfowl. They are especially plentiful around
Creston and in the Windermere Valley. The
eighty miles of slough fringing the Columbia
River in the Windermere provide an unparalleled landing water for every known species
of duck crossing this continent. The morning
and evening flights of the birds give sportsmen
marvellous bags, and artists subjects for photography and paint. Wild geese, ducks of all
kinds—gold eye, teal, green and blue, mallards
and canvas backs—are there in superabundance.
Besides there are all the grouse—blue, willow,
foolhen, and prairie chicken.
Ready access may be had to the lower slopes
of the mountain by automobile. And there are
trails for pack and saddle horses so that the
hunter may reach the higher regions. Kaslo,
Nelson, Revelstoke, Fort Steele or Windermere
are equally convenient for outfitting.
There are beautiful beaches round all the
lakes in the Kootenays and ideal conditions for
motor boating and canoeing. Nelson and Kaslo
both stage regattas.
In addition to Nelson and Kaslo, which are
situated on Kootenay Lake, there are summer
resorts at Proctor and Balfour and indeed all
along the West Arm of the Kootenay. At
Dean's Haven, Coffee Creek, Ainsworth and
Mirror Lake. At Christina near Grand Forks.
At Nakusp, Edgewood and Robson on the
Arrows. On Slocan Lake, at New Denver.
On Trout Lake at Trout Lake City. On
Howser Lake at Howser and on Moyie Lake
at Moyie. In the Windermere Valley there
are resorts on Windermere Lake, at Windermere, Athalmer, Invermere and Wilner.
For Alpine enthusiasts, Kokanee Glacier
Park, fourteen miles from Ainsworth, easily
accessible from Nelson and so close to Kaslo
that it is but a day's trip, provides all the thrills
and beauties the heart desires. There, in a
comparatively small area, are seven separate
glaciers with innumerable lakes, waterfalls,
crevasses, ravines and crags. The Park is in
fact a miniature Switzerland and provides most
stirring mountaineering adventure.
Nelson, on the West Arm of the Kootenay
Lake is a convenient base for exploring the
wonderful holiday resources of the Arrows, the
Slocan and the Kootenay Lakes, by steamer and
train or by automobile. The steamer trips are
without doubt some of the most marvellous
in the world.
Kootenay and Slocan Lakes are deep with
heavily wooded shores sloping steeply to
emerald waters. At points, nature has been
superseded by man, and orchards, pleasure
resorts, lumber mills and mining towns dot
their margins. An occasional "ghost city,"
relict of some rich mineral strike, stirs the
imagination and adds a spice of romance
for the initiate.
The Arrow Lakes are not lakes in the ordinary
sense of the word, but are broadenings of the
mighty and lovely Columbia River. Down
their winding distances are glimpsed vistas
of dissolving loveliness melting by panoramic
thrills into mysterious and craggy hinterlands.

Page Seven THE     LAKE      DISTRICT
Nelson is the most friendly and hospitable
of towns. Approached from the West Arm
by steamer at sunset it presents itself with
almost fairy-tale beauty. Homes touched to
gold by the last rays rise one above the other
along its terraced streets. Around them fertile
gardens spill a gorgeous profusion of bloom and
color. In nearly every garden there is a cherry
tree or two. Kootenay cherries are deservedly
famous. Large and blackly red, they are said
to benefit from the highly mineralised soil of the
Nelson has a nine hole all-grass golf course,
jam factory, match block factory, the usual
picture theatres and good hotel accommodation.
The links, besides boasting unexcelled condition,
have an unsurpassed situation. From the club
house one can view the Kootenay River for
miles, winding between verdant hills, and the
Canadian Pacific Steamers and tugs plying up
and down its waters. There is an even chance,
too, that a golfer may see a black bear with her
cubs cross the fairways, and often a covey of
grouse rises from almost underfoot.
Trail, fifty miles from Nelson and reached by
train or stage, is the site of the great reduction
plant of The Consolidated Mining and Smelting
Company of Canada. It consists of smelters
and refineries for lead, zinc, copper, silver and
gold and all the extraneous workshops appertaining to such operations. These works
constitute the largest non-ferrous metallurgical
plant of the British Empire.
Guides are placed at the disposal of visitors,
who cannot fail to be both interested and
stimulated. A laboratory for the investigation
of the commercial value of by-products is
among the equipment and at the present
moment an eight million dollar fertiliser plant
is being added. Seven miles from Trail is the
old mining town of Rossland, now a residential
quarter for Trail employees.
The name Ainsworth is perpetuated by the
little town on the Kootenay Lake where hot
springs and mysterious caves once led to
mineral investigations. Teddy Roosevelt on a
hunting trip up the Kootenays stayed there long
enough to help ship out the first load of ore
from the Kootenay mines to the United States.
Today Ainsworth is no longer a mining centre
but its hot springs are coming into their own.
Sufferers from Bright's disease, lumbago or
rheumatism go there. A new hotel has been
built recently and plunge baths constructed.
Kaslo is another picturesque, old time mining
camp. It is built on the delta formed as Kaslo
Creek flows into Kootenay Lake. Cherry trees
line its streets. It is the centre of a fisherman's
paradise and a sportsman's pipe dream. It has
what might be called a really "sporty" nine
hole golf course. The fairways are cleared
through heavy timber and over rock ledges.
Golfers tee off the side of a cliff, are bunkered
in a mountain stream, meet big game at the
seventh hole (probably) and land on a green
at the edge of a precipice.
Visitors are apt to come for a week and stay
for a month. For hotel accommodation is simple,
comfortable and very reasonable, and people
will dispense with gilt in the right environment.
Lardeau, also on Kootenay Lake to the north
of Kaslo, is the centre of big game hunting.
From Kaslo it is possible to go by a mountain
link of the Canadian Pacific through marvellous
scenery to Nakusp on the upper Arrows. The
railway winds along deeply eroded river beds,
across mountain streams tempting enough for
fishermen to leap from the train and take their
chance of a night's lodging anywhere, and
among little mining towns familiar from stock
market reports. At one point there is a view
of the Slocan Lake that rivals anything ever
seen. Silvery blue and elusive, it shines between
the pines like a princess enchanted by youth's
magician, and then the line slips through fertile
unirrigated country and so on to the Arrows.
Nakusp is a lumber town, whose market is
the Prairies. Good fishing is found in the
neighbourhood, and eight miles from the town
are hot springs invaluable for rheumatism.
At Halcyon too there are more hot springs.
These waters contain a very large percentage
of lithium, and are curative for many ills to
which the flesh is heir. Arrowhead to Revelstoke forms the connecting link with the
Canadian Pacific main line.
Slocan Lake, which can be reached by rail
from Kaslo or Nakusp or from Nelson via
Slocan City, is a typically beautiful mountain
lake. Hidden deep in the heart of the Selkirks
its pine covered slopes rise sheer from emerald
waters and snow capped peaks are mirrored
in its translucent depths.
New Denver and Silverton, both mining
towns—with a difference—are on its eastern
banks. The difference lies in the unusually
lovely gardens and orchards that surround
Page ?iine THE      LAKE      DISTRICT
Revelstoke on the Canadian Pacific main line
is a junction for Arrowhead and the Arrow
Lakes, a divisional point with workshops, and
an excellent centre for an unusual holiday.
It has a nine hole golf course overlooking the
sinuous windings of the Columbia, and overlooked by the everlasting hills. A park of
Olympian beauty is in its immediate vicinity
and all kinds of hunting and fishing very near
at hand.
Revelstoke National Park was opened on
August 17, 1927, by the Prince of Wales and is
approached by twenty miles of two way hard
surfaced road, sheer into the heart of some of the
loveliest scenery of the Selkirks. Lakes, glaciers,
mountain streams, parklike plateaux, tall virgin
timber all combine to enchant and amaze.
Wanderers from Scotland find their native
heather among its crags; Norwegians compare
its grandeur to their northern fastnesses; the
Swiss to their own dearly loved titans, and the
Canadians recognize it as a magnificent spot in
a beautiful province.
Windermere Valley is a paradise of serene
loveliness. Between the Rockies proper and
the hardly less inspiring Selkirks, it is of the
Kootenays and yet in a world apart. David
Thompson discovered it in 1807, and people
have been doing it ever since. That's the
feeling it gives you. A surge and uplift of
spirit, as if you yourself were very much a part
of its harmonious beauty. As if the dawn of
days was only the morning before, and this
miraculous valley, so calm and unspoiled, a
perfect gift from the High Gods.
There are minerals among its mountains
which if they do not hold fountains of eternal
youth, which their benign majesty seems to
promise, they do have many hot springs. To
them from time immemorial, Indians have come
to renew their strength, and of late years have
journeyed other health seekers from far afield.
These springs are of the radio-active variety.
The soil of the valley is light and among
other good p things produces the very finest
Netted Gem potatoes.
The best known of the hot springs are above
Sinclair Canyon and at Fairmont. Sixty
miles by rail from Golden on the main line the
visitors at Sinclair are served by Radium Hot
Springs Camp. There plunge baths are situated
among green and velvety lawns, and there is a
charming rustic camp among peacefully beautiful
Lake Windermere is itself warmed by hot
springs. It's an ideal place for a dolce {ar niente
existence: a heavenly lake for swimming lazily
beneath blue skies and listening dreamily to
Pan's Pipes, never too far distant among the
shadowy pines. And not far, by trail, is the
Lake of the Hanging Glaciers. There above a
lake gently warmed by hot springs, hang icy
fangs from frozen rivers. At intervals miniature
ice-bergs drop into its translucent waters and
daring swimmers play hide and go seek among
On the shores of Lake Windermere is a Ranch
Camp for girls (see page 12).
Personality and affability distinguish the
little towns of Windermere Valley. Wilmer,
Invermere, Athalmer, all attract visitors.
Athalmer has a yearly fair famous for its Indian
handicrafts and more especially for its decorated
gauntlet gloves. Fort Steele, south of Lake
Windermere, on the Kootenay River, besides
being a convenient point to outfit for hunting,
is the centre of a ranching and fruit growing
From Fernie, for many years noted for its
coal, The Consolidated Mining and Smelting
Company of Canada is obtaining rock-phosphate
rock for the new fertiliser plant at Trail.
Creston is the centre of a very prosperous
orcharding and small fruits country. Since
history was legendary, water fowl have made
the emerald flats, on which the town now stands,
a landing and resting place. And now The
Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company
are using them for their Flying School and
from them rise the wide wings of great man
made birds.
A glorious country — inspiring scenery —
