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.

Spring Stroll

The city has sprung to life again as the mercury hits 21 degrees. These walking paths are part of a park system that when completed will be the largest urban green space in the world.
"At 7,400 hectares, Edmonton's North Saskatchewan River valley is the largest stretch of urban parkland in North America. There are 22 major parks and over 150 kilometres of trails on which you can enjoy walks, bike rides, picnics, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and more. " Taken from the City of Edmonton website

I have been trying to start an Edmonton Daily photo blog for over a year now. Finally, I have begun and while searching for the other city blogs which initially inspired this idea,I stumbled across yours. You are doing a much better job than I am or I will. Congratulations. I might keep mine going though, because it is a great learning experience.

You have some great shots.

PS. This is one of my favourite paths in Autumn.
