Rogers Pass Visitor Centre, Glacier National Park, British Columbia, Canada 02

Description : Situated at the summit of Rogers Pass, this visitor centre is the principal source of information regarding the park.

Glacier National Park was established in 1886, in the same year as Yoho National Park to the east. Canada was a very young nation then; the Canadian Pacific Railway had just been built, linking the provinces of the vast country together for the first time. Many lives were lost in the process of building the railway line through the rugged Selkirk mountains. Some of the original railway structures, including stone bridges, trestle supports and snow sheds, still exist today.
