Edmonton - Riding the rails

Today I had the privilege of going on a field trip of sorts from Downtown to Old Strathcona and back by way of our High Level Streetcar.

Enjoy.





Our new tallest, Stantec Tower heading to 251m.












Our new Walterdale Bridge


LRT




The venerable High Level Bridge






Urban gardening























The best place in town for a flick.




Navy






A staple


















Pride












Malibu


Jazzy


End of Steel Park








Paddle strong

Recently been watching a lot of mafia movies and all of sudden to realize that it is perfect and very convenient for Edmonton urban gangsters to dump bodies as such dense forests surrounding the city...lack of neighborhood watch and surveillance cameras.

The tall building in the distance looks very similar to the Austonian here in Austin.

Tis indeed a gem of a neighbourhood and formerly a competing city to that of Edmonton...

There are a couple more golf courses just outside the overhead shot as well.
