Description

"Wapta Camp: At various points throughout the Rocky Mountains the Canadian Pacific Railway has erected a series of bungalow camps. These camps, which are eight in number, consists of artistically constructed sleeping bungalows surrounding a central community house used for dining and recreational purposes, and have attained a remarkable popularity amongst hikers, climbers and trail-tourists who wish to get off the beaten track. The picture shows Wapta Camp, just west of the Great Divide."
