Day 5, 6: Calgary, been there, done that.
Rode around Glenmore Reservoir. Nice park. Busy. Calgary is a nice city. On my ride I saw the perfect spot to get a skyline image of Downtown.
My wife arrived safely. Rough flight. All good though.
Went tot he Calgary Stampede this morning. Free admission from 7:00 to 9:00am.
Stampede is a big deal to Calgary. It’s a hard phenomenon to figure out. Imagine the Royal Winter Fair and the Canadian National Exhibition in Toronto combined with a lot more cowboy hats and you’ve got the correct image. All these yuppies roll up in their Honda SUVs, throw on a hat and instant cowboy for a day.
Welcome to the West.
Going into the mountains today. Leaving all this concrete behind.
