Rogers Pass in Glacier National Park, British Columbia: An Amazing Engineering Achievement
Late fall or early spring is a great time to drive through spectacular Rogers Pass in Glacier National Park of Canada, located in east-central British Columbia. My girlfriend and I find that the park's traffic greatly diminishes during these seasons.
This magnificent stretch of road winds through the heart of the Selkirk and Monashee ranges. You can learn all about this amazing engineering achievement at the Rogers Pass Discovery Centre, as well as visit the Summit Monument, elevation 4,534 feet.
Rogers Pass is along Trans-Canada Highway 1, about 43 miles northeast of Revelstoke and 50 miles west of Golden. The center is open daily, except on Christmas Day and in November.
For more information, call the center at 1-250-837-7500.
