Many decades of development is visible in this slice of Calgary’s downtown skyline.
A view of the Sunnyside neighbourhood, looking across the tip of Prince’s Island and the Bow River to downtown Calgary. The Centre Street Bridge is visible in the shadows, centre left. The picture was taken from McHugh Bluff in early January.
I almost walked past this neat photo opportunity on the Bow River Pathway in Calgary last week — an unexpected break in the trees giving a clear view of the river, the Centre Street Bridge and the city centre. It pays not to be in a rush, if at all possible!
From last fall, a rewarding view of downtown Calgary from the upper section of Edworthy Park in Wildwood. I could have got there the easy way, by driving over and parking in the lot by the dog run. Instead, I took the bus to the Parkdale side of the park for a nice afternoon urban hike.
