Calgary so far!
Posted at December 29, 2009
Looking at downtown Calgary from the north side of the Bow River.
Verily, this is an arctic wasteland. Will summer ever return?
Downtown Calgary has a lot of office towers. Shimmery.
The Calgary Tower. It’s actually much taller than the building on the left. Stupid angle.
Scary iron horsy!
This is a bit of Stephen Avenue, which was built during a boom in the early 1900s. It’s preserved as a (part-time) pedestrian shopping area. All the little old charming buildings are surrounded by skyscrapers.
That’s 8th Ave in downtown Calgary. It’s a transit corridor, reserved for the C-Train and busses.
… I just really like the colours in this pic.
Yet another picture of downtown Calgary. It so crazy!
This was at a Bass Pro Shop in the Crossiron Mills mall north of Calgary. It was insane, and a taxidermist’s dream. There were dead animals all over the store, fake landscapes (including a waterfall and lake).
Also at Crossiron Mills. Nifty!
Downtown from the Calgary Tower.
In the distance, yes, are the Rockies. So far away…
An outdoor rink downtown. Calgary’s not that bad, really.
Just three more sleeps, then I fly back home. YARR!!!
