Lake Louise-Jasper Highway. Climbers and fire wardens alike have noted the misplacement of several of the road indicators between Bow Lake and the Columbia Icefield chalet, notably those arrows supposed to point to Peyto Peak, Mt. Barbette, Mt. Mistaya, Kaufmann Peaks and The Castelets. The latter indicator, for instance, is placed below the “Lighthouse” pinnacle on Mt. Saskatchewan. These errors have been submitted to proper authorities verbally and in written form on several occasions, both by Major Tweedy and Mr. L. S. Crosby, only to be met by the usual bureaucratic indifference.
