AUGUST FIFTH TO NINETEENTH
"The Best Yet"
Now that spring has finally arrived -- people's thoughts are turning to gardening, fishing, and walking the high country, as soon as possible, Your OUTING COMMITTEE is planning what we think will be the most outstanding Summer Camp to date, barring neither the Tetons nor Glacier. Our bus will be piloted by Clancy Bankhead, which will relieve you of the drudgery of driving so you can give full attention to the scenic wonders of British Columbia and Alberta. Our destination this summer will be the biggest concentration of National Parks in all of North America. We plan to visit and explore Jasper, Banff, Yoho, and Kootennay National Parks. Our first camp site will probably be Johnston Canyon, located equidistant from Banff & Lake Louise.
The second week will find us in the Jasper area, traveling past the Columbia Ice Fields, where we will see Mt. Edith Cavell, Angel Glacier, & Miette Hot Sprgs. where we will rejuvenate our tired legs & feet. To return, we will probably go out the North end of the Park, then south down the middle of Alberta.
For a thrilling climax to our summer vacation we will traverse Glacier Park after a night at our beloved St. Marys Lake. Come to our Obsidian Night in May, see colored slides of the areas, and get full information on "The Best Yet".
