Thanks in advance for your advice. We are staying in Panorama for 1 night and then driving on to Golden, on our way to Yoho. Asking for what your suggestions would be to do/stop at on our way to Golden or things to do in Golden (we have the whole day to get their, nothing planned at this time, will be spending another day at Yoho.) I have read some on Kootenay National Park, Kayak in Golden, Gondola in Golden for dinner, Traveling as a couple, no kids, we like adventure. Will be traveling Sept. 20ish. If stopping at Kootenay what would be your suggestions? We do like to hike.
