These three items appeared on the front page of the August 6, 1937 Herald. The view from the top of Saskatoon Mountain was “the nearest thing to an airplane view he has ever seen from the ground,” according to W.D. Albright, and the same could be said today. Getting there had been made easier with the building of a sort of road, not to worry about mud holes four feet deep. The idea of hitchhiking to Vancouver would give us the willies now, but at the time it was considered an exciting experience. The third item is truly a grand adventure – an exploration of the Rocky Mountain Country west of the Peace River by a party of fifty people led by Count Nicholas Ignatieff.
