Excerpt from The Challenge of the Mountains: The Canadian Rockies, the Playground of America

The Canadian Pacific Railway line, above all others, merits the much-used description, The scenic line of the world. From Calgary to Vancouver, a distance of six hundred and forty-two miles, the beauty and grandeur of the scenery is continuous. That there is not a dull or uninteresting minute all the way is the opinion of all who have made the journey.

Unfortunately, the average tourist is all too prone to stop over only between trains and thus catch but a hurried glance of these glorious peaks, which is regrettable, inasmuch as frequently the greater beauty is missed entirely, though thousands claim that travelling through these mountains without leaving the train has been the most enjoyable event and the greatest scenic treat of their lives.

In the mountain ranges, lakes and valleys of this district are not only the scenic beauties and wonders of Switzerland duplicated on a much wider and grander scale but there is added a diversity of climate noted for its purity of air, its freedom from malaria and an almost total absence of extremes of heat and cold.
