Yesterday we decided to go for an urban hike from Downtown to the venerable Whyte Avenue (82 ave). Taking the valley down and up over and the High Level Bridge back, we covered around 15km of my favourite parts and places in this fair city.

Enjoy!:cheers:

Out the front door, probably should have brought some water and sunscreen, oh well.


We want to go over there... no, not the 1881 schoolhouse, across the valley!
