"Illecillewaet Valley: From Glacier we descend the western slopes of the Selkirk Range and henceforth our course -- with the exception of one or two minor ranges to climb -- is uniformly downwards towards the Pacific. The scenery still continues magnificently impressive; as witness this picture of the Illecillewaet Valley through which flows the river of the same name."

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