Does it say where exactly that cover picture was taken?. I would love to grab a picture from the same spot today.

Anything in Manning Park? I'm interested in old trails that have fallen into disuse.

1) Upper Similkameen west of Fat Dog Creek and south of Three Brothers.
2) Passage Creek south of Strike Lake.

I have one of those. It's an interesting reference. I used to keep a list in the back of the book of the peaks I've been up, but ran out of space decades ago.

At least 4 editions of this were published between 1966 and 1972.

My suspicion is that the photo was taken on Mt Seymour. I've seen ancient (1910-1920) photos taken on Seymour that look quite similar. It was certainly a popular hike, one that would be well known to people.

That is pretty cool I love collecting older guide books. Can you scan the contents page so we can see what hikes are in the book?

The Alice Ridge route is now very accessible. The road has been improved to the top of the ridge.
