They found no snow and only a little ice in Canada. The Columbia High- way is beautifcl and paved with ce- ment and asphalt It runs from Port- land to Cascade Locks up alongside ot the Columbia river, They found the worst from Hood River to Centreville on'a 40-mile stretch. The chief difficnlify was the new greasy grading on the locg hill from Sandpoint to Kingsgale where gravel is needed. This is in Idaho and the road was so bad that ft took three days to motor 68 miles. There were three ivashauts and at one a team had been placed to hanl motors out of the I mud and across the washout In Canada no difficulty was found with the roads which, however, Vere soft in a few places. Had they de- sired they might have motored ail the [way from Cranbrook to Macleod. Two oars just ahead of the Anderson parts were travelling from Vancouver. From the Pacific coast lots of people are coming to Alberta. 01 any will mo- tor and the trains are crowded with landEeekeri. After they.get settled on their new farm at Brooks, Alberta, the Anderson j family are piamiing to motor again to Cranbrook to enjoy to the lull the j pcccery of the Crows Nest Pass trail, j which they traversed via train. Mr. Anderson adds that if thP.Crovra Nest Pass route is made the National High- way that thousands of touring parties would come this way from the Pacific SUtes to the prairies ol Western Can- ada.
