Incredible day to the top of the mountain on gondolas from Kicking Horse Pass, Golden B.C. The boys mountain-biked down 4 times. Steph and I hiked a bit along the narrow mountain-top trail, Terminator Ridge. My old lungs couldn’t do many of the steep ascents. Then we marvelled at incredible 360 0 views from The Eagles’ Nest restaurant – the highest restaurant in Canada.  
 
Day 2 in Golden - June 26, 2014
Spirit Square in the center of Golden, B.C. by the Columbia River, where people gather, the market, Canada Day and summer evening concerts all happen.

Emerald Lake, Yoho National Park,
Emerald Lake, Yoho National Park, British Columbia. Look at that colour!!!!! All the glacier-fed lakes and rivers are this exquisite emerald or turquoise, depending on the light.
 
Memories to last a lifetime.
