The Trail of '35

The subject of geography. The primary objective of the Canadian Geographical Society to bring the various parts of the country into closer relationship. An account of a 4,000-mile aerial trip taken by the speaker last summer through northwestern Canada, and a show of slides to illustrate something of the character of the country along the course of the flight. The three-fold purpose of the expedition: to inspect several geological parties; to investigate a number of matters on behalf of the Administrative Council of the Northwest Territories; to observe and photograph from the air a large area of unknown country in northern British Columbia and southeastern Yukon which will provide information for use in completing a large scale relief map of Canada being constructed by the Canadian Geological Survey and enable a determination of the nature of the country north of latitude 60 degrees, where Liard river cuts across the northern extremity of the Rocky Mountains. A detailed description of the trip follows, with the slide presentation accompanying the address. Many personal anecdotes as well as geographical observations are included.
