This is a stunning bird's-eye view from the south that shows the Pacific Northwest and extends east to Edmonton, Alberta on the far horizon. The map shows Seattle at lower left, extends from the Cascade Mountains to show Okanogan Lake, Upper & Lower Arrow Lake, Kootenay Lake, the Kootenay River Valley, and across the Rocky Mountains to Calgary. Further north are Spence's Bridge, Kamloops, Revelstoke, Glacier Park, Yoho Park and Banff Park. Beautiful 3-D effect shows hundreds of mountains and all of the major rivers and lakes. Important places such as the Banff Springs Hotel are illustrated. At the far horizon is Ullin, the Rocky Mountain House, and Quesnel and Barkerville at the end of the important Caribou Road.
