    THE LAND OF SHINING MOUNTAINS

    Glacier National Park in the Rocky Mountains of northwestern Montana, and Waterton Lakes Park, its Canadian neighbor, were rededicated in the summer of 1936 as International Peace Park-a monument to the enduring friendship between the people of two nations.

    In these two parks one sees many a symbol of the peace that is shared by Canada and the United States. East of the Continental D ivide, streams rising in Glacier National Park flow northward through Water- ton Lakes Park, while west of it streams rising in Waterton Lakes Park flow southward through Glacier National Park • . . The majestic main range of the Rocky Mountains stretches as far as the eye can see northward toward the arctic, southward toward the tropics-there is no separation between the Canadian and the Montana Rockies.

    Glacier National Park is the larger, with 1,534 square miles of the grandest mountain country in America. Sixty spectacular glaciers, alpine meadows blazing with gay colored flowers, 250 startlingly beau- t iful lakes, rainbowed waterfalls swinging in the wind, green forested mountains upthrusting rocks of many colors toward serrated peaks mantled in perpetual snow.

    Waterton Lakes Park is, virtually, an extension, a northward continuation of this incomparably beautiful region. Its area is 226 square miles. Connecting the two parks are fine, wide highways traversed by park motor service.

    Over one thousand miles of roads and trails connect the hotels, chalets and camps. Sure-footed horses to ride and experienced guides to show you about. The amateur photographer will find spectacular views, friendly wild animals and picturesque Indians for camera subjects.

    What with so much to see here, and with so many things to do, with hotels, chalets and camps offering excellent accommodations at reasonable rates, we in- vite you to spend your next summer vacation in Glacier National Park and its neighbor, Waterton Lakes Park.
