At Blairmore, one may get the first glimpse of Crow's Nest Mountain, a circular shaped monolith. With its base deeply tinted in purple and green, and crowned and capped in a shimmering, dazzling mass of snow and ice, it seems to dominate the entire region. A few miles to the Westward, is Crow's Nest Lake, a beautiful body of water at an altitude of 4,390 feet. Near this lake is the curious source of Old Man River. It flows out of a cave hollowed from the living rock, a dashing, foaming, stream, and in a short distance enters the Lake. The scenery along the Lake makes views which are constantly shifting and changing, making combinations always interesting. Immediately to the West of the Lake, the summit of the Rockies is reached, and the mountain streams flow in two directions, into the Saskatchewan and the Hudson Bay, or into the Kootenay and Columbia Rivers and the Pacific Ocean.
