Description

"Banff - Canoeing: In the Rocky Mountains, where swift running waters generally preclude boating and canoeing, Banff is an exception. Lake Minnewanka, Vermilion Creek, Vermilion Lakes, and the Echo River, shown in the picture, offer beautiful trips by either motor-boat, row-boat, or canoes."

Excerpt from "ACROSS CANADA BY C. P. R.", Section 5--The Canadian Rockies; booklet, McGill University Illustrated Lectures, 1928.
