I have spent a lot of time envying people who lived in places like Victoria, B.C. or any other warm city because of their beautiful flowers and mild weather. Now I have realized that the place I live, Edmonton, has so much beauty too!
We are the city with the largest urban river valley. We have a long trails along the North Saskatchewan river that are good for running, hiking, or mountain biking. You can gold pan, kayak, canoe, and even Dragon Boat through our ravine! But nothing beats a good old fashion photo adventure early in the morning while the cherry blossoms are in bloom.
In all of the years I have lived here I hadn’t noticed the trees! I couldn’t believe how amazing they were!
