HIGHWAY 1 - THE TRANS CANADA

(Map of TCH, Manitoba.)
Author's note: Original map by
RAND McNALLY, butchered by Lee. A Wood

In the Province of Manitoba, Canada.

The original YH (Yellowhead Highway) went from Jasper, Alberta, through the Rocky Mountains, on an old railroad grade, to the town of Tete Jaune Cache, B. C. (British Columbia) (French for yellow head) from whence the highway got it's name.
Over the years, various groups have used the Yellowhead to promote tourism to their area. Consequently the Western end (or start) of the YH is now the city of Masset, B. C. on the Queen Charlotte Islands.
They have also designated highway 5 (From Tete Jaune to Hope, B. C.) as the Southern Yellowhead Highway.
Rumour has it that they are now trying to move the Southern terminus to Abbottsford, B. C. so they can include part of the TCH (Trans Canada Highway) in their tourist promotions.

Officially the Y H starts (and/or ends) in downtown Winnipeg (Corner of Portage and Main.) and follows the TCH through the city to West of Portage la Prairie, where it leaves the TCH and turns North.

These pictures may not be in order. I made several trips along this stretch of highway and took pictures in both directions through three of the four season of the year.
