"Arrow Lakes: On the other side of the Selkirk range are the Arrow Lakes, formed by the broadening of the Columbia River on its way south. These beautiful lakes, tributary to which is a great lumbering region, are practically two, connected by a circuitous channel, and are about 130 miles long. Midway between Kootenay Lake and the Arrow Lakes is yet another, perched gemlike at a considerable altitude -- Slocan Lake, in the heart of a very active mining district. The Arrow Lakes are traversed by a popular Canadian Pacific steamer line, which runs from Robson West, twenty-seven miles west of Nelson, to Arrowhead at the north, whence a short rail journey brings the traveller to Revelstoke on the main line."
