Our last sight see­ing stop is Gold­en in British Colum­bia. We Fly from White­horse in the Yukon with a stop in Smithers for lunch and fuel then on to our des­ti­na­tion. Leav­ing White­horse, we are soon in “uncon­trolled air­space” basi­cal­ly out of radar con­tact, and it is des­o­late but beau­ti­ful coun­try below. We make radio con­tact with Van­cou­ver Cen­ter and land in Smithers, a beau­ti­ful Alpine town. We cross the cen­tral val­ley of B.C. and then reach the Cana­di­an Rock­ies. Gold­en is in a canyon, and as we clear the last ridge, we see the air­port eighty five hun­dred feet below in the val­ley. The next day we rent a car and trav­el up the Trans-Cana­di­an High­way to the Lake Louise area. We see Emer­ald Lake, Kakakkaw Falls, which are the high­est in Cana­da, Lake Louise, Moraine Lake and a lot of beau­ti­ful Moun­tain scenery.

We have a great din­ner in Gold­en at the Kick­ing Horse Grill and then start prepar­ing for our return trip that starts tomorrow.
