Calgary, Canada - 2nd August 2009

By: smaug

Hi,

today was a lovely day and we went for a walk in Calgary, my first exploration out of the Rockies  :D. First we followed a trail on the south side of the Bow river . Here is a meander of the river looking downstream...

...and upstream. I was a bit surprised that all the birds disappeared as soon as I showed myself out of the bag, but sammino explained me that, even if we are TVs, the wildlife still see us as fearsome birds of prey  :stare:.

After a few km we reached a place called Edworthy Park. Going up a hill you have an incredible view of North Calgary  :)...houses disappearing in the distance on all sides.

This colourful building behind me is the Alberta Children Hospital  :thinking:

And you can even see Downtown Calgary, oooh  :)

Smaug’s pointing out that skyscrapers in Calgary are not all leaning like the Tower in Pisa, but because of the glare he couldn’t really see that the photo was coming out a bit tilted :rolleyes:....such a lame excuse  ;).
