This year marks the 100th anniversary or there about of the Swiss Guides in Canada. They were brought here by CP rail to show tourists who were travelling through the Rockies by rail the area as well as to climb the mountains and do some exploring. Golden has a rich heritage revolving around the Swiss guides. I have downloaded a great booklet about them. Just click below for a pdf file.
