This is a lovely and intriguing map of Glacier National Park in Montana and Waterton Lake Park in Alberta, Canada. The map was made to promote travel to the two parks by way of the Great Northern Railway.

The GN ran from Saint Paul, Minnesota, to Seattle, Washington, it was the creation of 19th-century railroad entrepreneur James J. Hill and was developed from the Saint Paul & Pacific Railroad. The Great Northern's route was the northernmost transcontinental railroad route in the U.S. This map was created with an appearance liking to that of a watercolor painting. Depth is given by way of mountain peaks, rivers, valleys, and lakes. Auto roads and trails distinguish routes one can take when exploring the two parks. Chalets, hotels, tent camps, mountain passes and peaks are all noted throughout the map.

Just below, altitudes of such places are given along with a table of distances and an index for the map. The verso features a variety of tourist attractions and lodging options along with prices.

Condition: This map is in A condition with bright colors, full margins, and only a few minor fold separations along the margins.
