Men, Rails and Mountains:
Conquest of the Canadian Rockies

Return to Gallery Index

The main drag of beautiful Banff where the HistoryAmerica group stayed on July 8-9, 2005.
We learned about the construction of the Canadian Pacific railway on this tour.

The Butchart Gardens in Victoria where our hosts were historian Brian Dippie and his wife, Donna.

The Empress Hotel, constructed by the railroad, in Victoria BC, which we visited on July 13, 2005.

The Airtram at Hells Gate on the Fraser River as seen from our dome car on the Rocky Mountaineer.
We took this magnificent train from Banff to Vancouver.

Van Drivers
Daring members of the HistoryAmerica group standing on "air" some 50 stories above Calgary. We had witnessed the Calgary Stampede annual parade before having lunch overlooking the city.

Pete Brown and Historian Guide Mike Koury with Rocky Mountaineer host and hostess David and Sharla in the luxurious dome car. The Gold Leaf service is like nothing HistoryAmerica has experienced in 14 years of travel — the very best in scenery, food and service. We plan to be back on the Rocky Mountaineer in 2007 and beyond.
