Pictures from my run; Edmonton is pretty nice in the summer- I’ve realized that after re-reading some of my posts that I may have given a negative impression of the area where I live. I often complain about the long and cold Northern Alberta winters, however during some recent runs I have been reminded of how nice Edmonton is during the summer. The weather has been perfect for getting outside and soaking in some natural vitamin D over the past 72 hours, so I decided to take some pictures while running and share them in cyberspace. This post is a photo blog of pictures I took during my run on Friday evening.
Entering a ravine in the Wolf Willow/ Westridge area about 3-4kms in.
Entering the path down into the North Saskatchewan River Valley headed towards Fort Edmonton. The structure in the distance is the Fort Edmonton foot bridge. About 5-6kms in.
Same path as above. The Edmonton skyline is in the distance.
The Fort Edmonton foot bridge from the other side of the river. The North Saskatchewan flows underneath.
Some horses in a pasture just past the Fort Edmonton foot bridge.
The path leading to Fort Edmonton.
Fort Edmonton. This picture doesn’t do it justice.
The North Saskatchewan River running underneath the Whitemud Freeway.
S#@T! The last thing you want to see 9-10km into your run. The stairs leading up to the Whitemud Freeway bridge.
Whitemud Freeway from other side of North Saskatchewan River.
DOUBLE S@&T! The stairs on the other side of the Whitemud Freeway. After running 10km, I really have to dig down to get up these.
Looking down from a pedestrian bridge at the Whitemud.
Is it the shoes?
Until next time,
