Calgary

Currently at the annual Calgary Stampede!!

This is so much bigger than we could have ever imagined. Not only do we get to go to the annual parade (2nd largest in North America with 150k+ attendees) but we are live at the Stampede now. It’s like a carnival but so so so much bigger … like City sized space dedicated to party!!

We were at the parade from about 8 a.m. until noon… They said over 700 horses walked today!!!

Finally the 4 hour parade was over…and  a this was the only day with free entrance to the stampede…so off we went!!

We had to take the metro…which was packed liked sardines…so it got a bit warm to say the least…

Anyhow, we made it after about 3 LONG train stops and 20 minutes…anikka did great!!!

We walked in….for free!! It’s normally $60 per person…Here’s the gate area…the. We were so tired we immediately found a beer garden to relax!!

There is sooooooo much to do here!!!

So much fun!!!

Then…we had to get back to the west side of Calgary…by train…

On the way back out!!

The train station!!

Theb anikka started taking pics on the train.

Aaaaah!!! We made it. Home sweet roaming home.

Spending Canada Day (150 years!) In Calgary, Alberta

So…it’s a city…a big city….much larger than anticipated…bigger than Portland but with a similar vibe… young demographic… downtown feels like San Francisco size…

We are staying at Calgary West RV Park…which was empty when we arrived…now completely full with the long 3-day weekend and Canada Day…

We spent a day downtown the same day we arrived to check it out…



Chilling…

Day 1…

Apparently they had a ski jump for the Olympics in 1988.

A day at bowness park along Bow river.


Yes!! More great views!

Today we went to the Bow Station fish hatchery…




They had this awesome interactive display that anikka played with for ever!!! BTW, since it was Canada day we had the ENTIRE PLACE TO OURSELVES!!!


Scott thought this was hilarious…





We fed the fish on a tour…


Yes…. So me…

Anyhow… On to celebrate with a bike ride along the riverfront all the way to Prince Island
