Golden Rules in Canada

By Linda Tancs

There’s good reason why the town of Golden, British Columbia, rules in western Canada. Sitting squarely in the Canadian Rockies, it’s surrounded by six of Canada’s most stunning national parks: Yoho, Glacier, Banff, Jasper, Kootenay and Mount Revelstoke. It’s also a pioneering town, once home to surveyors and explorers seeking lucrative trading routes in the Pacific Northwest. Those adventures led to the creation of the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR), using Golden as a base camp as the CPR created a cross-country network of rails. Later, the establishment of the Trans-Canada Highway transformed the area from a forest outpost to a vibrant community that now boasts one of the best backcountry skiing regions in Canada. Regardless when you visit, you’ll be wooed by the spectacular scenery, hiking trails, waterfalls, lakes and heritage sites of the national parks in your midst.

We usually spend winter in Florida, but due to Covid, we are going to BC instead. I am excited!
