SOUVENIR   COPY   OF   THIS    MENU    CARD   IN    ENVELOPE    READY   FOR    MAILING    MAY   BE    HAD   ON   APPLICATION    TO    DINING   CAR   STEWARD Through the Canadian Pacific
Rockies
Nature has thrown up the Canadian
Pacific Rockies on so vast a scale that the human mind
can with difficulty grasp their greatness — except by
some comparison. The "Trans-Canada Limited/' fastest Canadian Pacific train, takes twenty-two hours to
pass from Cochrane, at the entrance to the Rockies,
to Mission, where it enters the coastal plain. 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. It takes an express train five hours to travel from Lucerne to Como,
or from Lausanne to Arona.
When, therefore, Edward Whymper, the hero of
Matterhorn, described the Canadian Pacific Rockies as
fifty Switzerlands thrown into one, he certainly was
guilty of no exaggeration.
The Canadian Pacific Rockies stretch from the Gap
practically to Vancouver — nearly six hundred miles
of Alpine scenery. 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.
The Canadian Pacific route through these mighty
mountain ranges is in itself a visualization of human
triumph over nature. From Calgary, to which it has
been steadily climbing since it left Lake Superior, it
climbs another three-eighths of a mile to the Great
Divide. Thence, following the narrow Kicking Horse
Pass, it dips down to meet the majestic Columbia River;
then it re-ascends another quarter of a mile to the
summit of the Selkirk Range before beginning its three-
quarter drop to the Pacific. The Spiral Tunnels
through the Kicking Horse Pass, the Connaught Tunnel
through the Selkirks, are engineering feats of a magnitude matching the obstacles opposed to the passage
of the railway. The trip through the Thompson and
Fraser canyons is of scarcely lesser interest than the
journey through the mountains themselves.
