So Close to Downtown

One of my favorite things about living in downtown Edmonton is how easy it is to feel like you are in the middle of nowhere.  I took a walk for a few minutes today, and found myself on the river trail.  Instead of hearing loud sirens and motorcycles, I heard chirping birds and rustling leaves. 


Because we are leaving in less than a month, I am trying to document some of the things I really enjoy about this place.

So far, I have decided that summer here is bliss, it almost makes winter worth it.  It stays light until eleven which gives me so much energy.  There are tons of events, Farmers' Markets, and fun to be had everywhere.

This final view is a little reminder that I didn't stray too far from downtown.
