Edmonton is one of the largest northern urban centers in the world. Located in Canada, Edmonton is the capital city of Alberta. The city has a strong history as a trade center, and it served as the last major stop for the Klondikers during the Gold Rush. This is why we Edmontonions call our city "The Gateway to the North"

Please enjoy my perspective of one of of the fastest growing urban areas this side of China.

Alberta Coat of Arms

I hope the skys are this blue in Edmonton today. I will be heading home on Sunday.

This is a shot from one of the provincial buildings. It features the Alberta Coat of Arms.

If you click on it and zoom in you will see the Coat depicts wheat fields in the for front with the foot hills and Rockey Mountains in the background.

I like the angle you took this. Our skies aren't blue today, expecting rain!

I agree with Tanya. Where are my blue skies. I like the quirky angle, gives it a twist.
