Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - September 21, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta 1WBBS WITH THE AMERICAN ARMIES IN FRANCE * t �> j, " ~ T ~ d Ftat->o Cossaittcs'cs:PubncInformation.'' ... ____,, .. stone, ice and snow. ^J^fiPSjiii|i^p|| The Maker of tbe unlrerse has exhibited infinite variety in His architecture. No two peaks are alike in shape or symmetry; no two waterfalls pour from the heights in equal volume; no two rocks oi' pebbles are similarly fashioned. There are no "repeats" in the 'wonder 'World of the out-of-doors, and there are therefore marvels. and .curios beyond number. 4 Here are soiae of them: First, the new well-known but alwaj-3 interesting; Hoodoos of Canmore. On a mountain side north of the G. P. R. Station may be seen a rjroup of curious rooks known as The Hoodoos, a series of red conglomerate rocks, worn into fantastic shapes by wea-jther action. There they stand, den-ant of the passing years and of the, passing storms as well, evidences of the freakish handiwork of nature. Imagination can easily picture them as humans turned to stone, like -the 'pinnacles on the Witch Mountair of Norway, and legends could v.eli be woven arouna them as around the Norwegian peak. . Next: Jet us ko to the Prospector's Pass- a lonely Alpine region, south , -.................-.....-------------............______ of Banff and ;_ake Louise, where one (reunited.Btatesj Committee'.on: Public Inforaattoa. I wiu flnd a strango rock known as �"�--�*---�'- ' iih-.ihm..............J Kasle's -Eyrie. Standing- In all its solitary grandeur, it looks like a I by. the art arid hands 01 man. but it is again a production of nnt"re. imposing in its size -when seen at close quarters. It is sometimes an actual nesting place for the eagle, where its young may; rest secure from enemies.  Another form of curio is to be found in natural bridges. A fine specimen is to bo seen at Field, 'where the Kicking Herse River is spanned by one of these rock arches, destined to last through the centuries and ages despite the constant erosion of the rushing waters. Thousands visit this curio in the realm of nature and are well repaid for the interesting sight. The Glaciers provide another series of natural curiosities, In ice arches, caves, bridges and deep-hearted but dangerous fissures, �Uep into a typical ice1 cave if you would experience a new sensation. There you wlil iy realize how green green is, how deli- H cately blue other shades may be, and {? how purely white roof or base may y also be. Under one's feet may be born, as at the Illeclllewaet Glacier of the Selkirks, while overhead a chimney-like opening glimpse of the blue sky. Or if one is crossing a. snow field, or negotiating a 'mountain - as an alpinist, keep your eyes open for the curious snow cornices that overhang w , T7 * V *' * �� ~�&& the valleys. They are ofter. most freakish in design. Finally, there is a rich of natural curiosities in Coves of the Selkirks, r Glacier Station, vhero th walls, as lit up by flushllgl myriad forms, imitative, faces, animals or curiosities architecture ;
