/T^ANFF and golf are becoming almost interchangeable
|*3 terms in the sporting dictionary. Time was when
the major attractions at Banff—in addition to the
perfectly appointed hotel itself with its unending social
activities—were the sulphur pool and the fresh water
pool, the four en tout cas tennis courts and the multi-
tudinous outdoor activities one naturally expects in
such a mountain resort.    But an eighteen hole, 6,640
yards, golf course with bent grass greens and well-
turfed fairways has been added—with Indian caddies,
by the way, and a $100,000 club house overlooking
Bow Falls as the 19th hole. And now when golf is
mentioned—golf as it should be enjoyed, on a perfect
course and amid superb surroundings—the mind just
naturally wanders to the banks of the Bow — and
The line of the Canadian Pacific traverses or adjoins
six of the magnificent National Parks of Canada. Theserare:
BANFF PARK (3834.5 square miles)_jife chief
centres of which are Banff and Lake Louise.
KOOTENAY PARK (587 square miles) extending

automobile road.
YOHO PARK (476 square miles) in which are sit
uated Emerald Lake, Wapta Lake, Lake O'Hara and the
beautiful Yoho Valley.
GLACIER PARK (468 square miles) a remarkably
fine climbing centre in the Selkirk Range.
WATERTON LAKES PARK (220 square miles)
in southern Alberta.

Mount Bident
—Painted by Richard M.  Kimbel
^T^HE most picturesque trans-continental route in North
\ZJ America is that of the Canadian Pacific. Its title to
the claim has yet to be seriously challenged. The
matchless scenery of the "Canadian Rockies places that claim
beyond doubt—that awe-inspiring sea of almost seven
hundred peaks over 6,000 feet in height, aptly described
as fifty S wither lands in one. Not that the Rockies have a
monopoly of the beauty along the Canadian Pacific Route
but it is here that Nature excels.
The attractions of this great mountain region are as
alluring as they are diversified. There are superb motor
roads. There are also winding trails through the mountains
which you will ride on a sure footed pony. There are sophisticated outdoor sports—golf at Banff on the world's
most scenic course, tennis at many of the resorts, and swimming pools that the ancient Romans might have envied.
There are also more primitive pleasures—riding, hiking,
climbing, camping in the great outdoors, fishing in mountain
streams and lakes and getting close to Nature.
There are jewels of almost incredible beauty like Lake
Louise, Lake McArthur, Lake O'Hara, Lake Oesa or Shadow
Lake; majestic waterfalls like the Takakkaw and Twin
Falls, and winding passes and canyons like the Kicking
Horse. There are also flowers and wild life—tall clusters
of columbine, yellow arnica, wild heliotrope, white hedy-
sarum and Indian paintbrush; hoary marmots, porcupines,
white tailed deer or lumbering black bear, incredibly tame.
Nowhere on the continent has Nature been more prodigal. Nowhere have the means of appreciating her gifts been
developed with greater vision or to better advantage than
in that portion of the Canadian Rockies traversed by the
Canadian Pacific.

Good the World Over BANFF HIGHLAND
eACH year towards the end of
August a Highland Gathering and Scottish Music Festival
is held at baronial Banff Springs
Hotel. For a few brief days the
skirl of the bagpipes re-echoes
through the mountain fastnesses,
§ the tartans of the Scottish clans
glint on the spacious terraces
while the stirring games and
dances, brought by their ancestors from the Old Country,
challenge the prowess and skill
of Scots drawn from every part
of the continent. For interest
in this Gathering of the Clans is
not.confined to Canadian Scots.
Pride of ancestry is as strong
below the forty-ninth parallel
and in every corner of the United
States the call strikes a responsive
chord. In the evenings the Scottish Music Festival provides the
entertainment and six thousand
miles from their place of origin
the songs and melodies of Scotland are interpreted by consummate artists. Towards the end
of August, for the Scot, whether
by birth or ancestry, the centre
of interest is Banff.
No less colorful as a spectacle
are the celebrations during Indian
Week (third week in July)
when four hundred Stoney Indians from the Morley Reserve,
40 miles east of Banff, gather
for their tribal sports. Superbly
mounted on steeds resplendent
with gorgeous trappings and
headpieces, the braves and
squaws in their costumes of
white buckskin, trimmed with
beadwork and ermine, and their
feathered head-dresses, make a
dignified and memorable pageant.-

FOR those who would penetrate the "cool dim gateways
to the mountains' heart," Trail
Riding holds an irresistible
appeal. On the back of a surefooted mountain pony you explore the hidden beauty spots
of the mountains where no
automobile has ever passed. At
night you make your headquarters in one of the Bungalow
Camps or in a tepee or under the
open sky. The length of your
trip depends solely on your
inclination, though various scheduled rides are regularly operated.
Full information is available at
the hotels and bungalow camps in
the Roc\ies.
Those who have ridden fifty
miles or upwards in the Canadian Rockies are qualified for
membership in the "Trail Riders
of the Canadian Rockies"—an
association which aims at encouraging travel on horseback
through the mountains, the maintenance and improvement of old
trails/anchthe building of new.
Each year an Official Ride and
Pow-Wow is held towards the
end of July when Trail Riders
and aspirants to the title get
The annual Exhibition and
Stampede at Calgary is an event
which no one should miss. Cowboys and Indians from every
part of the continent vie for the
honors in roping, broncho-busting, bull-dogging and the other
activities which are but part
and parcel of this western carnival week. The event is held
early in July and reservations
should be made at the Hotel
Palliser, Calgary, Alta.
JN DEVELOPING this majestic mountain playground, the Canadian Pacific has furnished the traveller with a diversity
of accommodation designed to meet the most varied needs. There are magnificent hotels—baronial Banff Springs,
second to no mountain hotel in the world; Chateau Lake Louise, standing in a bed of Alpine poppies on the shores of
the "Pearl of the Rockies," and Emerald Lake Chalet, less formal perhaps but no less picturesque. There are also Bungalow
Camps, avowedly informal but with no undue sacrifice of comfort, and mountain Lodges and Tea Houses and Rest
Houses—all particularly designed to meet the needs of the trail rider, the climber, the fisherman, the hiker or those who
are just trying to forget the heat and turmoil of the city in the clear, cool mountain air. Only the briefest mention of these
resorts is here possible.    Detailed illustrated booklets will be furnished on application to any Canadian Pacific Agent.
HEADQUARTERS of Banff National Park and situated
beside the glacial-green waters of the Bow in a pocket
of a wide circle of pearly-grey peaks, Banff is the summer
social centre of the Canadian Rockies.
Not the least of its attractions is the Canadian Pacific's
palatial Banff Springs Hotel —a hostelry of world-wide reputation, which draws its clientele from those whose exacting
tastes demand nothing short of the best. Special rates are
offered to resident or longer term guests.
To the natural attractions of this region have been added
unsurpassed sporting facilities. The world's most scenic golf
course, built at a cost of $400,000, is but a few yards from the
Hotel. There are four en tout cas tennis courts; two superb
swimming pools—one filled from warm sulphur springs and the
other from mountain streams. There are bridle paths and trails
for riding; paths for the hiker and scenic roads like the Banff-
Windermere highway for the motorist. And in the evening,
as you stroll on the moonlit terraces, with frowning peaks
surrounding you, the strains of a lilting orchestra float out
from the spacious ballroom. There is always something to do,
something new to see and world famous artists are brought
to entertain you.
Situated thirty-five miles from Banff by rail, Lake Louise
is probably the most perfect gem of scenery in the known world.
Nestling 600 feet above the railway on the far side of a mountain palisade, amidst an amphitheatre of peaks, it is a dramatic
palette on which the Great Artist has splashed his most gorgeous hues. Beggaring description is the gleaming Victoria
Glacier at its further end, the sombre pine-clad peaks that dip
almost perpendicularly into the lake and the snow-crowned
crests that enclose the entire picture.
On the margin of this perfect lake, in one of the wonderful
flower gardens in which the Rockies abound, the Canadian
Pacific has placed its Chateau Lake Louise—a hotel which for
the beauty of its appointments and excellence of its service
can challenge comparison.
As at Banff there is swimming—in the warmed glacial water
of the Chateau's 100 foot pool—motoring, hiking, riding and
climbing and the very joy of living in such surroundings.
In addition to these two charming hotels, the Canadian
Pacific operates two Bungalow Camps within the confines of
this national park. Nine miles from Lake Louise, in the Valley
of the Ten Peaks, is the attractive Moraine Lake Bungalow
Camp where meals and sleeping accommodation may be
obtained. Twenty-six miles from Banff on the Banff-Windermere
road is Castle Mountain Bungalow Camp which takes its
name from the mighty bulwarks of Castle Mountain. In
addition to the many scenic attractions of this district, there
is good fishing within a short distance of the camp.
FIFTY-SEVEN miles from Banff via Lake Louise is Field,
headquarters of Yoho National Park. Rather wilder
and rather more densely forested than Banff Park, Yoho
Park offers some very attractive motoring, climbing and pony
trips. There are four favorite centres in this Park, among them
Emerald Lake, which is but seven miles from Field, a lake of
most exquisite coloring and sublimity or surrounding, lying
placidly under the protection of Mounts Wapta, Burgess and
On its shore is Emerald Lake Chalet, a picturesque structure
surrounded with bungalows and equipped with every modern
convenience. In the vicinity are a variety of fine hikes, rides
and climbs and also some trout fishing.
Other centres in the Park where accommodation may be
had are Yoho Valley Bungalow Camp, reached by car, and
facing Takakkaw Falls; Wapta Bungalow Camp, on the railway
and the Kicking Horse motor road; and south of the latter
and reached only by trail through an almost primeval forest,
Lake O'Hara Bungalow Camp. At Yoho Camp the rides are
the major attraction; at Wapta there is good fishing, while
O'Hara is an ideal centre for the hiker and climber.
Yet another Bungalow Camp is operated by the Canadian
Pacific, this time in Kootenay National Park which is traversed
by the Banff-Windermere highway. A reserve of almost 600
square miles of hitherto unopened country, Kootenay Park is
one of the richest regions in both scenery and big game in the
entire Rockies. At the Sinclair Pass are the "Iron Gates"—
portals gloriously colored as if splashed with pigment. Within
these gates and in a miniature valley are radium hot springs,
rivalling in therapeutic value those at Banff. On a hill overlooking Sinclair Creek, the hot springs and the highway is
Radium Hot Springs Bungalow Camp close by the open-air
swimming pool and bath house which has been erected by the
government.    The camp offers ideal accommodation.
Three National Parks have been mentioned—Banff Park,
Yoho Park and Kootenay Park—and it is possible to circle
them without traversing the same ground twice.
During the summer season, commencing June 30th, a Three
Day Circle Trip, "The Lariat Trail," is operated every Monday and Thursday or any day with a minimum of four passengers over this route from Banff via the Banff-Windermere
Road, Golden and back to the starting point.
The first day is spent at Castle Mountain Camp (lunch) and.
Radium Hot Springs Camp (sleep). The second day is spent at
Golden (lunch) and Emerald Lake (sleep). On the third day the
run is along the Kicking Horse Pass, stopping for lunch at Lake
Louise and back to Banff.   The distance of the.trip is 300 miles.
