UNFOLDS THE W O N D E R S O F THE
CANADIAN ROCKIES
The t w o lines o f the Canadian National
Railways between the Rockies and the Pacific
Coast, and the water-borne route of the same
company between Vancouver a n d Prince
Rupert, comprise The Triangle Route which
offers one of the most famous vacation trips in
North America.
Taking Jasper, in the heart of the Canadian
Rockies, as the focal point, one leg of the triangle extends westward through the Rockies,
the Selkirks, and other ranges to the Pacific
Ocean at Vancouver. I t follows in part the
upper reaches o f the Fraser River, then the
turbulent North Thompson River to its confluence with its south branch, and finally moves
along beside the lower reaches of the Fraser to
the sea. From Vancouver, side trips to Victoria
and Vancouver Island can be made by boat or
by Trans-Canada Air Lines.
From Vancouver, t h e water-borne route
extends northward to Prince Rupert along the
sheltered Inside Passage t h a t lies between
British Columbia's mainland a n d off-shore
islands. I t is a trip of two nights and one day,
skirting a mountainous shore deeply indented
by long fiord-like arms of the sea, all along the
way. P o r t s of call include the paper-making
towns of Pow'ell River and Ocean Falls.
Eastward from Prince Rupert, the third leg
of the Triangle extends to Jasper, following in
turn the famous Skeena and Bulkley Rivers and
finally, just before The Great Divide, the upper
reaches of the Fraser River. T h i s third leg,
like the first, swings past Mount Robson, highest of all peaks in the Canadian Rockies.
This is the perfect vacation trip. I t includes
incomparable rail and sea voyages; spectacular
alpine scenery and visits to attractive cities.
It affords an opportunity to see ancient Indian
villages with their primitive culture and t o
enjoy the beauty and comfort of Jasper Park
Lodge, one of the most famous summer resorts
in the world. I t has something for everyone
From Vancouver, The Triangle Route moves
eastward and northward over the main transcontinental line of the Canadian National Railways. A few miles from Vancouver it crosses the
Fraser River and begins to move along its left
bank into country that grows more mountainous
as miles succeed one another. A s the line climbs
northward, the river becomes more tumultuous,
boring through deeper and deeper canyons, reaching a crescendo of noise and awesomeness at Hell's

VANCOUVERVancouver, third largest city in Canada, has
good reason to claim to be its most beautiful. I t
lies in an amphitheatre o f mountains beside a
large and perfect deep-sea harbor. N o city could
improve upon the beauty and layout of its residential areas, the exquisite campus of the University of British Columbia above the Gulf of Georgia
on Point Grey. N o city anywhere has a municipal
playground that in area or natural magnificence
can match Stanley Park almost in the heart of
Vancouver. T h e r e are beaches and golf courses

VANCOUVER—PRINCE RUPERT
Words are inadequate to describe the grandeur
of the sea lane between Vancouver and Prince
Rupert. I t lies between the mainland of British
Columbia and the off-shore Vancouver and Queen
Charlotte Islands. Therefore, except f o r one
narrow strait which is crossed in a couple of hours,
it is sheltered all the way.
The mainland and the two island groups. i n

PRINCE RUPERT—JASPER
The 700 miles of railway between Prince Rupert
and Jasper go through some of the most spectacular scenery in Canada. Central British Columbia
is a land o f immense forests, famous for their
timber, a land of mines and fisheries, a haunt of
big game hunters, and a gentle fruit-farming
country. I n history as in geography, it is a land
of contrasts. Weather-worn totem poles in Indian
fishing villages along the Skeena, old trading posts
and forts, stand as symbols of the past; high steel
railway bridges and modern towns are symbols
of the present.
Leaving the city o f Prince Rupert on Kaien
Island, you follow the Skeena River for about 175
miles before you go into the valleys of the Bulkley
the Endako, the Nechako and the Fraser. T h e
Skeena is a mighty and mysterious river, often
shrouded in clouds and mist; a busy river, with
its innumerable fishing c r a f t a n d i t s salmon
canneries. Names like Tyee and Sockeye give you
one aspect of its nature. Soon after passing over
the broad plateau a t Terrace, the fruit centre
famous for its strawberries, you come to the edge
of Kitselas Canyon, and soon you are in the old
Indian village of Kitwanga, with its colonnade of
totem poles. N o t far away lies Temlaham, the
Indian Garden of Eden.
The greatest thrill of the journey is the canyon
in the Bulkley River, and the renowned Gate, a
dyke of solid rock, eight feet thick, 150 feet high
and 50 feet wide, that juts out across the river.
The railway follows the fertile Bulkley plateau
and valley—dairying, fruit, grain and minerals—
for 90 miles, and the Endako for about the same
distance. M a k e a note of Burns Lake. I t is the
entrance t o Tweedsmuir Park, which you may
wish to visit some day.
But n o w your course i s east, through t h e
Nechako and Fraser Valleys, to Mount Robson
and Jasper.

NATIONAL PA R K
JASPER is the largest national playground
in America. I t i s big i n more than area.
Long mountain ranges, with peaks that soar
into the region o f eternal ice and snow, flank
widespreading valleys; long, winding rivers,
mighty waterfalls, great expanses o f shining
lakes and the tumbled ice of vast glaciers, give
the park such a scale as you expect to find in
the Rockies. Y e t the little things that make
mountains a joy are here, too; the hills you can
climb easily on foot or on horseback; the little
alpine meadows brimming with wild-flowers;
the quiet creeks and babbling brooks; the chipmunk as well as the moose, the bluebird as well
as the eagle.
With jasper Park Lodge, t h e enchanting
village of bungalows on the shore of Lac Beauvert, as your headquarters, or one of the hotels
or camps in town or near it, you may explore
the diversities of this magnificient park. Yo u
may walk, or ride, climb, o r take your ease
sightseeing from a motor car. T h e r e are
hundreds of miles of motor highways and pony
trails. They take you to the incredible Maligne
Lake, or the Tonquin Valley, to the foot of the
Angel Glacier on the slope of radiant Mount
Edith Cavell, t o the eighth wonder o f the
world, the Columbia Icefield.
You may play golf on one o f the finest
courses in the world; play tennis; swim in a
delightful open-air heated swimming pool; fish
for fighting trout. Jasper is a wild animal sanctuary; and i f you want t o bag bears, deer,
moose, elk, bighorn sheep o r high-stepping
mountain goats, you will have to do i t with
your camera.
Jasper Park Lodge doesn't look like a hotel;
it was built in keeping with its surroundings;
but it has alt the comforts and conveniences of
the most up-to-date hotels in the city—electric
light, hot water, good beds, topnotch meals,
music, a ballroom for dancing or movie shows,
a spacious lounge with stone fireplaces, where
you may read, or play cards, or simply doze
and dream.
The lodge grounds have been carefully but
not ornately landscaped. B r o a d expanses o f
emerald lawn flow down the gentle slopes that
lie between the lodge and Lac Beauvert, a
mirror i n which the mountain peaks about
reflect their own perfection. I n the lake beavers
swim; unharmed and unharming, deer and bear
wander about the lawns as unconcerned as
domesticated animals in a meadow. I n bright
sunlight or under the soft illumination of a full
moon there is a quality of magic about Jasper
that grips the heart and holds the memory. I t
has no rival. I n all the world there is only one
Jasper and one jasper Park Lodge.

MOUNT ROBSON PARK B.C.
Next door t o jasper National Park stands Mount
Robson Park. W i t h i n its 800 square miles i t crams a
world of grandeur. This could hardly be otherwise, for it
surrounds the monarch of the Canadian Rockies. Mount
Robson shoulders up nearly 13,000 feet above sea level.
Its imperial dignity is made all the more impressive by the
tremendous glaciers that flow from its dazzling snowy
crown, down its massive rocky slopes, to the green valleys
and the incomparable lake. Y o u may have a magnificent
view of Robson from the railway, but to do it Justice you
should make a trip into the park, see Berg Lake, see the
Valley of a Thousand Falls, see the Niagara of the Rockies,
Emperor Falls.
Mount Robson Park and the area adjoining Jasper
National Park is excellent big game country. I t harbors
caribou, mountain sheep and goat, moose, elk, deer,
grizzly and black bear as well as small fur-bearing animals.
Outfitters and guides are efficient, well-equipped and know
their districts thoroughly.
Tumbling Glacier and Berg Lake add
to the wonders of Mount Robson.

THE T R I P T O BERG L A K E
One of the finest scenic trail trips in the Rockies is from Mount
Robson to Berg Lake, a distance of 16 miles, four of which may be
covered b y automobile and twelve by saddle horse. F r o m the
cedar groves through which the trail runs, across the canyon o f
the Fraser River, up the banks of the Grand Fork River, which
roars along rapids and cascades t o that placid sheet o f water,
Kinney Lake, t h e visitor is constantly being presented w i t h
different aspects o f Mount Robson. F r o m
