Why I Love Calgary

I know I complain a lot over the lack of heat here the past few summers, but I do really love Calgary. This week, the weather has been beautiful. Many leaves are gone, but some are still clinging tight.

With the nice weather this week, I've been hitting the trails that are 10 minutes from my house.

Up the hills

Down the hills

crossing bridges

It's a great workout, and fantastic at lifting spirits. I mean, how can you not feel great looking down this trail.

The weatherman is calling for 21 C (70 F) tomorrow. I can't wait to hit the trails again. It's days like these that remind me why I love Calgary.

The weather is so nice right now. I'm looking forward to this weekend... I actually have it off for a change. Hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving weekend. xx

Gorgeous! I'm going to visit a friend in Buffalo next week and I asked her to take me into Canada since I've never been there, I can't wait! :)

In it something is also to me your idea is pleasant. I suggest to take out for the general discussion.

It is a pity, that now I can not express - it is very occupied. I will be released - I will necessarily express the opinion.

I definitely want to read a bit more on this blog soon. By the way, pretty good design your blog has, but how about changing it from time to time?

ARGH! I just wrote you this WHOLE LONG COMMENT about my experience in Calgary over the summer and how it really changed my (somewhat) negative view of Alberta that I've had after I lived in Edmonton for a few years but then it got deleted somehow - AAAAAARGH!!!!

Lovely photos. And as my previous comment said, Calgary really did make me reconsider Alberta as a beautiful place after we spent an incredible day there in the summer and were blown away but how clean it was, the cool street art, the fact that you can take trails rather than streets as shortcuts to some places and the river.
