Today I will be showing you pictures from our trip in Golden British Columbia. I have wanted to go to Golden for quite some time now because I have heard it is just beautiful, and to be honest it is. The town is surrounded by mountains and rivers, and it is not overly developed which has helped to keep the nature aspect a huge part of visiting there.
Now, before you decide to drive there like we did, I do have to warn you that the roads in BC aren’t the best. You need to be a comfortable driver because to get there the road is narrow and you’re driving down a winding road on a mountain side … 🙂 But as long as you drive the speed limit,you should be all good!
When we first arrived in Golden it was in the evening. It was pretty cloudy, but I was still determined to get some half decent pictures!
This is the Kicking Horse Pedestrian Bridge. This bridge goes across the 46m Kicking Horse River in Golden. It is the longest freestanding timber frame bridge in Canada, so its definitely worth a walk on if you are in the area! This bridge weighs about 210, 000 lbs!! Holy ! It is also made of Douglas-fir timbers, which is pretty cool if you ask me.
We went on a walk over the bridge and then continued on the trail along the river. Eventually you were suppose to end up back at the bridge but somehow we got lost, ended up walking by a landing strip, running over train tracks, hopping a fence, and walking through the residential area to try and find the bridge again…. I am pretty sure it is very hard to get lost though… so you should be fine 🙂
This was the view from our hotel room, pretty spectacular if you ask me. Every room in this hotel definitely had a mountain view since the entire city is surrounded by them!
Now you will see my attempts at capturing the sunset on a cloudy night.
Hope you enjoyed the post! Let me know if you have ever walked across the Kicking Horse Pedestrian Bridge below!
Until next time,
