Lake Navigation: 0054.0561

            The lakes are still covered with fifteen inches of ice, making navigation impossible.  Captain Troupe thinks the boats will be running between Arrowhead and Robson in about two weeks.  At present passengers for the main line go to Slocan Junction, where there is a very comfortable hotel, and leave the next morning for Nakusp via Slocan lake.  If they choose, they may go to Nelson and remain overnight, coming back to the Junction on the early morning train.
