"Mount Assiniboine: Twenty miles south of Banff is Mount Assiniboine (height 11,860 feet), the Matterhorn of the New World, the first ascent of which was made, after many unsuccessful attempts, in 1901. The way thither leads through beautiful valleys shaded with transparent blue lakes and park-like openings, and the journey is a particularly fine pony and camping trip, with a camp at the end."
